HC Deb 30 April 1958 vol 587 c40W
Mr. P. Williams

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many people are now employed on trading estates in the North-East of England; and how this figure compares with 12 months ago.

Mr. Erroll

Factories administered by the North Eastern Trading Estate Company employed 51,753 at end-March, 1958, and 51,675 a year earlier. The March, 1958, figure excludes employment in two factories sold to tenants during the year.
