Start-up Businesses

Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will break down the numbers of high growth start up businesses referred to on page 24 of Annex B of his Department's Autumn Performance Report on its comprehensive spending review objective 4 by (a) region and (b) country. (110650)

[holding answer 26 January 2007]: I have been asked to reply.

No estimates have been made of the number of high growth start-ups at the regional or country level. This information is not held centrally and therefore can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
