Brooks Newmark promotes seed enterprise investment scheme

6th November 2012

Brooks Newmark welcomes the Government’s seed enterprise investment scheme which will encourage angel investors to back entrepreneurs and stimulate private sector job growth.

Mr Brooks Newmark (Braintree) (Con): Does the Chief Secretary agree that the seed enterprise investment scheme announced by the Government in the past year is the sort of highly attractive fiscal incentive that will both encourage angel investors to back entrepreneurs and, at the same time, stimulate the job growth in the private sector that we need?

Danny Alexander: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the work he has been doing to promote the seed enterprise investment scheme. His description of it is absolutely right, and I know it is being looked at widely by investors who wish to invest in small firms in this country. I hope it will help to transform the landscape for that sort of investment in newly formed companies in this country, and I hope that he will continue his hard work.
