HC Deb 01 May 1986 vol 96 c465W
Mr. Burt

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what Her Majesty's Government are doing to stimulate new business start-ups in Northern Ireland.

Dr. Boyson

Last month I announced additional allocations specifically to assist new small businesses by providing 400 additional places under the Enterprise Allowance Scheme and 200 further grants under the Local Enterprise Development Unit's enterprise grant programme, which provides a grant of up to £5,000 for new business start-ups.
