To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for a coordinated effort by the UK and Welsh Governments to improve prospects for small and medium businesses in Wales.

I will continue to have regular discussions with the First Minister and UK Cabinet colleagues on how the Welsh and UK Governments can work together to support economic growth in Wales. The new campaign to help motivate and inspire small businesses to succeed under the GREAT Britain brand is an excellent example of a joined up approach to business support across Britain that I fully support and will be promoting to the Welsh Government.

I am keen that all businesses in Wales have access to the support they need. My Business Advisory Group met on 9 July to discuss the new finance available to businesses across Wales as a result of the announcement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, my right hon. Friend Mr Osborne, in the spending review. Promotion of these new finance opportunities is a matter my Office will be taking forward.
