On 29 August 2017, Government announced new boardroom laws to make UK companies more transparent and accountable. 

Personally, I think good governance and integrity is at the heart of any successful business and this further move towards transparency and governance can only be good - even for private businesses. 

However, its also important to ensure that this initiative does not place unnecessary additional burdens on companies - that will ensure that Government get the blend of governance and business operations right while encouraging private businesses to be successful and well run.
