HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c427W
118. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many firm commitments have been made by industrialists to develop in central West Fife, and Scotland as a whole, respectively, in the last 12 months; and how many male jobs he estimates will be likely to accrue.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody:

Of the 15 industrial development certificates issued for central West Fife since 1st December, 1966, one is unlikely to be proceeded with and 3 are for advance factories not yet allocated. The remainder are expected to provide 1,560 jobs for men. In Scotland as a whole 253 industrial development certificates have been issued in the same period for projects estimated to provide 10,900 jobs for men.
