53. Mr. Terlezki

asked the Paymaster General what information he has as to the role played by franchising opportunities for those wishing to set up in business.

We are aware of the growth in Franchising over recent years and of projections for future growth in this area. It is clear that franchising can make an important contribution to the creation of new businesses, wealth and jobs. We are maintaining contact with the British Franchise Association.
