To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make it his policy to designate 1994 as a year for enhancing enterprise in Wales.

My policy is that every year is a year for enhancing enterprise in Wales.In the last 10 years, the number of self-employed people in Wales has risen by over a third.

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has to develop a Welsh enterprise foundation; and what efforts are currently undertaken by his Department to encourage an enterprise culture within Wales.

My Department works closely with a range of bodies including the WDA, DBRW TECs, local enterprise agencies, colleges and schools to promote enterprise in Wales. I am considering the Institute of Welsh Affairs' report "Wales 2010" including its proposal that the institute should act as the catalyst in establishing a Welsh enterprise foundation.
