HC Deb 07 May 1996 vol 277 c43W
Mrs. Roche

To ask the President of the Board of Trade how many catering firms(a) in total and (b) in each parliamentary constituency will be excluded from applying for a loan under the loan guarantee scheme as of 1 September. [28177]

Mr. Page

Given that eligibility for the loan guarantee scheme depends on factors other than the business sector it is not possible to determine how many catering firms will be excluded.
