§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will instigate a sample survey to establish the number of jobs created as a result of the loan guarantee scheme.
§ Mr. MacGregor
In the two sample telephone surveys conducted by the Department of Industry, the interviewers attempted to assess the increase in employment in those firms sampled as a result of the loan guarantee scheme. The results of the first survey were published in July of this year and copies were placed in the Library of the House.
