§ 27. Mr. W. Hamilton
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many new jobs are in prospect in the immediate future in the Central West Fife area.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. John Rodgers)
It is estimated that about 450 new jobs will become available in the area over the next few months.
§ Mr. Hamilton
Can the hon. Gentleman be more specific and say exactly where these jobs will be? Is it a net figure taking into account the steady run-down of the mining industry?
§ Mr. Rodgers
It is not possible at the moment to give the names of the firms. At the moment, they are confidential. These are 450 new jobs that will be provided.
