The Office, Tory-style

Prime Minister David Cameron has a trick up his sleeve to get the country out of the economic downturn - giving vacant government offices to small businesses to help them grow.

Last week, Cameron said: "Let's match the capacity we've got with the need that's out there. Let's provide office space where we can to those who can use it." With the North Lambeth office of COI set to become vacant, an appropriate solution would be to move a start-up agency on to each of its floors. What are the odds on Mark Lund, the former boss of COI and co-founder of the start-up agency Now, being front of the queue? He could even get his old office back.
