Nadhim Zahawi asks about support for disabled entrepreneurs

Nadhim Zahawi questions the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions about support for disabled entrepreneurs.

Nadhim Zahawi (Stratford-on-Avon) (Con)

I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his appointment. There is no one more appropriate to take on the reform and social justice agenda of his predecessor. What is his Department doing for disabled entrepreneurs? May I remind him not to forget entrepreneurs who are disabled?

Stephen Crabb

There are some amazing examples of disabled people who have set up really successful small, and not so small, businesses around the UK. In my previous role as Welsh Secretary, I recently had the pleasure of meeting a number of them in Cardiff. They are absolutely the kind of people that we as a Government need to be backing and supporting. Schemes like Access to Work are a really important part of that.
