While in Leeds, speaking at the launch of the Business In You campaign, David Cameron told a group of entrepreneurs, that government buildings which are sitting idle will be made available to small businesses and new companies at lower rates.

In a renewed bid to boost the economy, the Prime Minister announced plans to open up empty office space and workplaces, which are not fully utilised, to new enterprise and small companies. According to David Cameron, the priority will be to sell the buildings which are empty, but until they are sold they can be of use to others. Over 300 buildings will be made available at low rates for 12 months, helping new and small businesses to reduce costs.

As the government make cuts in the public sector, a number of government buildings remain empty for long periods of time, until a buyer is found. The new initiative will provide funds for the Treasury. The Prime Minister said:

“I said 2012 has got to be the year we go for it, the year we light new fires of ambition in our economy, the year we get behind Britain’s grafters, doers, hard workers and entrepreneurs.”

He further stated that the future of the UK is dependent on enterprise. Phil Orford, chief executive of the Forum of Private Business applauded the efforts of the government to give support to small businesses, as Small and Medium Enterprises will lead the way to recovery for the UK.
