Business: Staffordshire

Volume 504: debated on Friday 29 January 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much capital has been supplied to small businesses in Staffordshire through the Government’s Enterprise Investment Scheme. (313440)

I have been asked to reply.

The relevant data are not available at the level of individual counties. However, consistent with the latest HMRC National Statistics published for investment raised through the Enterprise Investment Scheme in the Government office regions, the total amount raised and invested in small businesses in the West Midlands through the Enterprise Investment Scheme since it was introduced in 1994 is around £300 million.
