Lord Young on enterprise scheme


The government is announcing more money to encourage young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses.

Lord Young, author of the Review into Enterprise, says the scheme is "a real opportunity" for young people. "It's more than money", he explains, as they will get mentors and "it's advice that really counts".

He told the Today programme that he wants to see an increase in small firms and "this is the right step towards it".
