Mr. Freeman

asked the Paymaster General if he will give the latest number of enterprise agencies in active existence.

Mr. Trippier

There are currently 336 local enterprise agencies in active existence in the United Kingdom, of which 246 meet the requirements of the Finance Act 1982, which allows business sector sponsors tax relief on their contributions to such bodies.
