HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c235W
Mr. Mainwaring

asked the President of the Board of Trade the numbers of factories, not now engaged in production, in the charge of Welsh Estates; and where they are situated.

Mr. H. Wilson

One factory at Hirwaun and one at Bridgend have recently been vacated, although the latter has already been allocated to another tenant. In addition 28 small buildings on these Estates, with a total area of about 35,000 sq. ft. are not at present occupied. One factory at Cyfarthfa is substantially complete, but is as yet untenanted. Tenants are now taking steps to move into seven factories at Gorseinon, Newport, Cwmbran, Aberbargoed, Ponthenry, Garnant and Llwynypia but have not yet commenced production.
