HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 cc130-2W
Mr. P. Morris

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to ensure the fuller use of the Fforestfach Trading Estate, Swansea, where 40 sites, equipped with all services, are available for new industries which would absorb at least a proportion of the increasing number of the unemployed in the area.

Sir D. Eccles

The hon. Member will know that we have an empty factory for which we are seeking a tenant. Exten- sions have recently been authorised for two Government factories on this estate; when completed these are expected to provide 86 new jobs. In addition, there are several inquiries in hand for building leases on the estate.
