I was interested to read the letter from James Preston-Hood (July 24, page 29) regarding the plethora of safety assessment schemes

The clients are clearly not demanding the multitude of questionnaires and schemes, and the specialists certainly are not. The government is calling for less bureaucracy in this area and even Rita Donaghy’s independent report covers this issue. Could someone please tell me who is imposing this wasteful, costly and frustrating practice upon our industry?
