HC Deb 11 July 1996 vol 281 c283W
Sir Irvine Patnick

To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many companies have contacted business links since its inception in Sheffield. [35847]

Mr. Page

Business links are private sector partnerships, not Government bodies. National statistics on businesses using business links are available in the quarterly "Report on Business Link and Business Link Regional Supply Network Management Information" and a copy has been placed in the Library of the House. Local statistics are a matter for local business links partnerships and I will ensure that the chief executive of the Sheffield business link is aware of the hon. Member's question.
