§ Mr. Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what consultations he has had recently to encourage light industry and small businesses back into the inner city areas.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I have consultations regularly with representatives of small businesses and others concerned with 413W the welfare of small firms on a wide range of issues. We are pursuing a number of policies designed to assist small firms wherever they may be located. The Department keeps in close touch with the inner urban programme.
