HC Deb 24 January 1984 vol 52 c487W
34. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will widen the scope of his Department's enterprise allowance scheme.

Mr. Alan Clark

As I said in my reply to my hon. Friend the member for Meriden (Mr. Mills) on 17 November—[Vol. 48, c.552]—we are extending the scheme until March 1985 to provide grants for a further 35,000 people under broadly the same eligibility rules as at present.
