§ Mr. Trippier
On 22 April 1987 8,148 people were on the enterprise allowance scheme in Yorkshire and Humberside. This figure includes 1,189 people receiving the allowance in the Leeds area. Currently 1,374 loans under the loan guarantee scheme totalling about £40 million have been guaranteed in the Yorkshire and Humberside region. This includes the Leeds area for which separate figures are not kept. No records are maintained of those people who are receiving both enterprise allowance and a loan under the loan guarantee scheme.
