I declare an interest as a director of the Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust. Does the minister agree that the trust has proved to be an impressive model for encouraging young people to start up and succeed in running their own businesses? Does he accept that the trust and others like it could have a role to play in missionary work in our schools in which businesspeople communicate with youngsters? Would they not be better ambassadors for the cause than bureaucrats?
