HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c132W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received from business and industry about the effect on investment of his Budget measures.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

My colleagues and I have received many representations from organisations and individuals about all aspects of the Budget proposals. In particular, the measures to assist small firms have been widely welcomed by business and industry, as have the improced allowances for agricultural buildings and hotels.
