§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Minister of labour how many have been added during the last month to the 226 men who had been given employment since 1964 in the manufacturing projects undertaken in Wales by State-owned industries.
§ Mr. Darling
I have been asked to reply. The employment figures to which the hon. Member refers are the estimates, made at the time, by applicants for i.d.c.s granted since 1964 for manufacturing projects by State-owned industries, of the male employment likely to be provided by the projects on their completion. It is not possible to provide information on the employment currently provided by these projects, most of which were for extensions of existing works and some of which have not yet been started.
