Andrea Praises Yorkshire's £54 million in Government Start Up Loans

The UK Government-owned British Business Bank has issued its 75,000th loan through its Start Up Loans programme, marking more than £623 million invested in small businesses across the UK since its launch in 2012.

I am pleased that the Start Up Loans scheme has benefited every region and country in the UK, and underscores the government’s commitment to level up and improve opportunities across every part of the United Kingdom. Here in Yorkshire over £54 million has been issued to small businesses.
