On 8th June 2011, Lord Heseltine agreed to be interviewed for the book and to discuss the issue of government intervention.
Michael Heseltine was President of the Board of Trade and subsequently became Deputy Prime Minister. Lord Heseltine was responsible for developing the vision for Business Link in 1992. He is credited widely as the founder of modern industrial policy and business support.
In 2011, Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Heseltine as Chair of the Independent Advisory Panel coordinating the Regional Growth Fund, a £1.4 billion investment to create jobs in the private sector. Lord Heseltine was once again at the heart of the intervention agenda.
