HC Deb 09 February 1993 vol 218 cc534-5W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what incentive schemes his Department sponsors in Wales to assist women to establish their own businesses.

Sir Wyn Roberts

Support for women who wish to establish their own business is provided by the training and enterprise councils and our strategic guidance to them stresses the importance of advancing equal opportunities to help people realise their potential. TECs tailor their provision to meet local needs. Local enterprise agencies also offer help to people setting up in business.

The department also supports initiatives such as the Chwarae Teg/Fair Play consortium and Opportunity 2000, both of which aim to expand the role of women in the work force.
