§ Mr. Flight
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the deadweight take-up of the community investment tax credit in its first full year of operation; and what measures he will take to ensure that deadweight impact is minimised. 
§ Mr. Boateng
Forecasting in this area is very uncertain, with respondents to the Government's consultation on the community investment tax credit giving wide-ranging estimates of demand. The Government will minimise deadweight through the selection procedure for organisations using the tax credit.
