Health and Safety "stifling childhood"

Judith Hackitt, the Chair of the Health & Safety Executive has recently claimed that "jobsworth" bureaucrats are creating joyless playgrounds as a result of overuse of regulations.

She states that: "The creeping culture of risk-aversion and fear of litigation...puts at risk our children's education and preparation for adult life. Playgrounds have become joyless, for fear of a few bruises."

Let us hope that this tide continues to turn!
