HC Deb 05 May 2000 vol 349 c234W
Mr. Redwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) what payments have been made in 1999–2000 under the Enterprise Fund announced in the 1998 White Paper; [121007]

(2) for what reason total provision for the Enterprise Fund given on page 198 of Cm 4611 differs from estimated outturn given on page 41. [121006]

Mr. Byers

The net estimated outturn for the Enterprise Fund in 1999–2000 (£48.5 million on page 41 of Cm. 4611) is consistent with the figures shown on page 198 (£57.88 million) which are gross, and from which must be deducted the figures for the Small Firms Loan Guarantee Scheme Premium Receipts and Recoveries shown on page 199 (£9.38 million).

Total actual payments in 1999–2000 under the Enterprise Fund, updated since the publication of the estimates in the Expenditure Plan Report, were £38.62 million (gross).
