HC Deb 02 June 1998 vol 313 c195W
Mr. Page

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the regulations that have been removed or amended to help small businesses since 1 May 1997. [42787]

Mrs. Liddell

[holding answer 1 June 1998]: The Government have concentrated on a number of measures to help small businesses although no specific regulations have been removed or amended, a number of measures such as cuts in the small companies' rate of corporation tax and enhanced first year capital allowances. Future changes, such as the transfer of the Contributions Agency to the Inland Revenue from April next year, will also help to ease the burden on smaller businesses. No specific regulations have been removed or amended.
