Commenting on the publication today of the Enterprise White Paper Sally Low, Director of Policy and External Affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

"It was essential that we saw some positive measures designed to encourage enterprise and business growth today and the White Paper contains many encouraging initiatives.

“The Government has made some strong commitments: to introduce regulatory budgets; to hasten regulatory culture change by firmly embedding  the ‘think small first’ principle into government policy and to increase investment to boost access to finance, which could help growing, ambitious firms to become bigger and better. We also welcome initiatives designed to increase the level of enterprise education in our schools and colleges. Sowing the seeds for a new generation of entrepreneurs and business people is absolutely essential for long term economic success.

“We will work with the Government to ensure that today’s proposals are turned into real benefits for our members”.
