HC Deb 14 April 1967 vol 744 cc260-1W
Mr. William Edwards

asked the Minister of Labour what percentage of the insured population of Merioneth is employed in manufacturing industry.

Mr. Hattersley

In the area covered by Barmouth, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Corwen, Harlech and Towyn local offices (which approximates closely to the county of Merioneth) it is estimated that at June, 1965, just under 7 per cent. of the total number of employees in employment were in manufacturing industries.

Local estimates for mid-1966 will be available in June, 1967.
