HC Deb 16 May 1963 vol 677 c176W
27. Sir K. Thompson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what additional employment is now in prospect for Merseyside as a result of recent development proposals.

Mr. D. Price

We have received a substantial number of inquiries recently about the possibility of further industrial development on Merseyside. It is too early to put any figure on the amount of additional employment likely to result. Some 20,000 jobs are in prospect on Merseyside in the next 3–4 years, resulting from new industrial building and other developments known to the Board of Trade.
