asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the progress of the enterprise allowance scheme in North-East Lancashire; and if he will consider extending it to other areas of North-West England.

I am satisfied that the pilot scheme in North-East Lancashire is making satisfactory progress. Before consideration can be given to extending it to other areas we would need to be satisfied that the necessary finance was available and that there was a need for a new pilot scheme in that area.
