HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c498W
Mr. Grylls

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what is the cost per job to the Exchequer of jobs created as a result of the Government's small firms loan guarantee scheme.

Mr. Eggar

The net Exchequer cost of the loan guarantee scheme per person leaving the unemployment count is estimated to be of the order of £450. This figure is derived from the costs of a typical loan adjusted by the benefit, tax and national insurance savings relating to those leaving the count in the first year of a loan as a direct result of the scheme.
