HC Deb 04 July 1984 vol 63 c177W
22. Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has had about changes in the loan guarantee scheme.

Mr. Butcher

The decision to continue the loan guarantee scheme until the end of this year has been welcomed. Some concern has been expressed about the changes, but it has been widely recognised that modifications to the original pilot scheme were necessary.
