Commenting upon the creation of a new Department of Business and Enterprise David Frost, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

 "The new Department of Business and Enterprise is a signal a good intent from the Government.  Hopefully this will build on the good work of the DTI and focus on fostering a spirit of enterprise and innovation in business.
