HC Deb 09 March 1988 vol 129 c278W
Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when he will announce the first managed workshop in an inner city area.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

There are already many managed workshops in inner cities, but I believe that more are needed to provide premises and advice for people starting new businesses.

English Estates is leading the new DTI-funded programme announced on 7 March and is already involved in negotiations with private sector companies. We should be able to announce specific new projects in the near future.
