HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 cc112-3W
84. Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Paymaster General what assessment he has made of the effects of the business expansion scheme on covered sporting and leisure facilities.

Mr. Trippier

Companies providing covered sporting and leisure facilities will continue to be eligible for investment under the business expansion scheme, provided that they meet the conditions on the backing of investment by property assets. I am anxious that the scheme should continue to encourage genuine risk-bearing investments, and my right hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury will be monitoring the effects of the new provisions.
