Mr Major’s Written Question on the Welsh Development Agency – 11 November 1980

Below is the text of Mr Major’s Parliamentary written question on the Welsh Development Agency, published on 11th November 1980.

Mr. Major Asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he has yet been able to evaluate the pilot loan guarantee scheme implemented by the Welsh Development Agency; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell The evaluation of this scheme is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales, but in considering the option of a national loan guarantee scheme for small businesses we shall wish to study the results of the Welsh Development Agency’s experience with this measure.
