HC Deb 14 December 1983 vol 50 c479W
39. Mr. Ashby

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, pursuant to the reply to the hon. Member for Hertford and Stortford (Mr. Wells) on 27 July, Official Report, c. 1168, if he will assist local enterprise agencies in the role they play in management training in the west part of the city of Leicester.

Mr. Trippier

I am anxious to encourage local enterprise agencies to provide management training facilities for small firms which complement the work of other agencies involved with education and training. In the Leicester area small business start-up courses and the MSC financed management education extension programme are already being run by other local organisations.
