HC Deb 19 November 1991 vol 199 c122W
Mr. Michael

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list the organisations which have received or are to receive pump-priming cash or other grant aid from his Department in order to help develop co-operatives.

Mr. Jackson

The Department has agreed to provide pump priming support for the United Kingdom Co-operative Council. A number of other proposals are under consideration at present for development funding.

Co-operative ventures and other organisations in-volved with the co-operative sector can also receive assistance indirectly from the Department through the training and enterprise councils or local enterprise companies, bodies such as the Prince's Youth Business Trust and a range of Government initiatives available for small businesses.
