HC Deb 15 March 1960 vol 619 cc1101-2
22. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give a list of the firms through which it is hoped to provide 2,000 to 3,000 jobs in South Tyneside East; and what further information he now has about the other prospects of additional employment in the area.

Mr. J. Rodgers

Estimates of jobs in prospect are based on confidential information provided by the firms concerned. I therefore cannot give the hon. Member the list for which he asks.

Mr. Fernyhough

Is the hon. Gentleman satisfied that these jobs will eventually materialise, and can he say when they will materialise?

Mr. Rodgers

I am afraid that I could not say that, but we try to be as accurate as possible in our estimates.
