    and sounds like a big fib Of course we ve yet to see how this agenda pans out but based on what the Government s already done it looks more like it is undermining rather than supporting the regions Cable concedes RDA axe has been chaotic There is a big discrepancy between the funding that was available to the regional development agencies RDAs and the cash that will be put into the new Regional Growth Fund the engine that will drive the activities of the local enterprise partnerships the bodies that will replace the RDAs London at the heart of the matter Here the Northwest Regional Development Agency NWDA had about 300m last year The Regional Growth Fund will have about 450m a year over three years to spend on projects through the UK That is a pretty stark contrast Decisions on who gets the money will be taken in London by a ministerial group chaired by deputy PM Nick Clegg That doesn t sound like striking a blow for decentralisation to me And it looks like assets held by those RDAs will be flogged off with the cash returned to London Meanwhile local authorities have been promised more discretionary powers over spending but hundreds of millions of pounds are being stripped from their budgets Share and Enjoy Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Submit Comment Search Recent Posts Jaguar Land Rover the new industrial saviour Positive outlook makes refreshing change at The Business of the Economy Why I m stumped by ECB decision Engine plant provides the spark for growth Why business as usual is a fatal response to Birmingham s riots Categories Select Category TheBusinessDesk com News Economics Sport Property North West Retail Events Manufacturing Uncategorized Airlines

  • Can Cable really count on small business? | TheBusinessDeskblog.com
    One thing was on my mind Does he really believe the private sector is strong enough to employ the thousands who will lose their jobs as a result of Government cuts Even in our economy that s trying to get out of this terrible shock the banking crisis the North West has generated 50 000 new jobs this year and almost all are in the private sector said Cable The economy did grow by 0 8 in the last quarter but business especially small business is having a torrid time Faced with waiting 90 or even 120 days for payment the reluctance of the banks to lend and less flexibility from HM Revenue Customs small businesses are operating in a harsh environment and that s before the Government sucks billions out of the economy I asked a consultant who has been working with small firms since the 1970s whether he could see business taking up the slack as the Government predicts Not a chance he said Without a shadow of a doubt it s tougher than it s ever been and I ve been around for 40 years Somebody s got to help because the banks don t They are not lending unless it s fully secured and the borrower has already got plenty of money It s really really difficult out there Share and Enjoy Comments 1 Darryl Trethewey says October 17 2013 at 10 47 pm Hi there my pal I wish to point out that this post is actually remarkable good created and include almost all crucial infos I must discover a lot more articles this way Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Submit Comment Search Recent Posts Jaguar Land Rover the new industrial saviour Positive

  • Why Tom Riordan is the right man for the job | TheBusinessDeskblog.com
