§ 30. Mr. Lidington
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what progress his Department is making towards setting up one-stop shops.
§ Mr. Heseltine
A total of 57 partnerships have submitted bids for funding pilot one-stop shops. Many of these bids cover wide geographical areas and make proposals for establishing one-stop shops in more than one local area. This is an excellent response. I intend to announce the winning bids by the end of March.
