HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 cc199-200W
Mr. Probert

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he is taking to bring about a reduction in the very high percentage of men unemployed in the area covered by the Mountain Ash and Aberdare employment exchanges.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Aberdare and Mountain Ash are eligible for the full range of financial inducements available in development areas and we shall continue to bring their facilities for industrial development to the notice of suitable firms. These areas should benefit from the 450 jobs for men which are expected to arise there within the next four years in authorised new industrial building and in existing buildings taken over by manufacturing firms.
