§ 8. Mr. J. Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development what further measures he is taking to secure the establishment of new industries in the areas of the Ammanford and Garnant employment exchanges, which are scheduled under the provisions of the Local Employment Act.
§ Mr. du Cann
I am glad to say that the Board of Trade's continuing efforts to attract industry to the Ammanford and Garnant areas have met with a recent success. An application by John White Footwear Ltd. of Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, to lease the Board's factory of 25,000 sq. ft. at Ammanford has just been approved. A Government aided research association is providing machinist training, which is a key requirement in the firm's move to the area.
