Local Authority Business Growth Incentives Scheme

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many school enterprises have been awarded contracts under the Local Authority Business Growth Incentives Scheme to date. (209966)

None. The Local Authority Business Growth Incentives scheme is not a scheme for the award of contracts. It is designed to give local authorities an incentive to encourage local business growth, which it does by paying a non-ringfenced grant to authorities where business growth exceeds a certain level, as measured by changes in the business rateable value base.
