Prime minister David Cameron has vowed to assist the growth of small businesses with the appointment of David Young as his enterprise adviser.

According to Downing Street sources, Lord Young’s role will ensure the economic contribution that small and medium sized enterprises make and the issues they face are recognised by government.

The enterprise adviser’s first task will be to write a ‘brutally honest’ report examining how government departments interact with and impact on small businesses.

He will also be responsible for investigating how government can encourage more people to start businesses and maximise opportunities through the reform of government procurement, ensuring access to finance and minimising regulatory burdens.

Cameron says: ‘I am seeking nothing less than a wholesale change in attitude from my government and I need help to get there. So I am delighted that Lord Young has agreed to be my Enterprise Adviser. He brings his own passion for business and a wealth of experience to the role.’
