Mr. Jay

Fifteen projects requiring i.d.c.'s were completed for manufacturing industry from January, 1965, to December, 1966. These projects were expected by those responsible for them to provide jobs for 950 males and 510 females when fully manned. In the same period, the Board of Trade offered assistance totalling £1,348,000.
