THE Government will be called upon to set up a task force to investigate the problems of small businesses at a forum to be held as the Conservative Party conference gets under way tomorrow.

David Fenemore, the director of Agenda, a centre for management training and business development, says the move is needed to halt the waste of talent and public money caused by the continuing high rate of small company failures.

The task force - an independent commission representing small business and other organisations involved - would look at the reasons for the high rate of failures.
