HC Deb 13 July 1988 vol 137 c262W
29. Mr. David Shaw

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what has been the response of the private sector to the six action for cities breakfast presentations.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Over 1,200 senior business men attended the six working breakfasts and about a quarter have already made specific offers of help. The offers included secondments, managed workshop space, industry/education links and free advice to inner city businesses. These offers are being pursued by the city action teams and I am receiving reports on the progress made in taking them up.
