Reducing red tape?

As a responsible farmer I have been reading through recent post from the Envionment Agency, 23 pages of blurb. It is asking me to re register for Agricultural Waste exemptions as they change on the 30th September 2013. My favourite excemption so far is: "Use of waste to manufacture finished goods" (U9). The example they give is making crooks or walking sticks from waste wood! The key limit I am allowed to store is 100 TONNES!!! or by my calculation 50,000-60,000 crooks!!
Who gets paid tax payers money to dream up and write this crap?!
