HC Deb 14 April 1967 vol 744 c265W
Mr. Woof

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will state, in respect of total financial assistance to firms in the North-East development districts for the year ended 31st March, 1967, the average capital commitment for each job expected to be created.

Mr. Darling

A figure is not yet available for the period in question, but for the eleven months to end February, 1967, it was £550. This excludes those advance factories for which no employment estimates are available and is in respect of assistance offered in the North-East part of the Northern development area.
