HC Deb 24 June 1937 vol 325 c1348
6. Mr. W. Joseph Stewart

asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons, men and women, that have been placed in employment in factories on the Team Valley trading estate up to date?

Mr. E. Brown

I am informed that none of the tenants of the six factories already occupied has yet begun manufacturing production, and I have not been able to ascertain how many persons are employed on the preliminary work of installing machinery, etc., but the number is necessarily small and would afford no indication of the numbers who will be employed subsequently.

Mr. Stewart

Can the right hon. Gentleman state the nature of the industries which have been started in this training estate?

Mr. Brown

I will get a list and let the hon. Member have it.
