HC Deb 19 December 1986 vol 107 c739W
Mrs. Roe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much money has been invested through venture capital funds into companies employing fewer than 500 people since the inception of the business expansion scheme.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Information is currently available for the years 1983–84 and 1984–85 only. In this period £85 million was invested in companies through Inland Revenue approved venture capital funds. Information centrally available on company size indicates that all companies employed fewer than 500 people.
