The Development & History of Regulation

These web pages summarise key issues and developments in UK regulation.

The first 4000 years  - Regulation from pre-history through to around 1980.

1980 - 2020 - The introduction of utility regulation, increased emphasis on better regulation and deregulation, and much, much more.

2021 - date - The latest developments, including the post-Brexit regulatory regimes.

I have also begun to collect some notable quotations.  Further contributions would be very welcome.
