HC Deb 04 April 2000 vol 347 c460W
Mr. Sayeed

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further plans he has to introduce measures to assist small businesses. [117311]

Mr. Timms

We are seeking to make Britain the best competitive environment for business in the world. Budget 2000 sets out a substantial package of tax and spending measures that build on existing measures to help small businesses move up the ladder of opportunity. These measures are set out in more detail in Chapter 3 "Meeting the Productivity Challenge" of the EFSR.
