Mr. Bagier

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how much land has been available in the Houghton-le-Spring area for industrial use in the last four years; how much of it has already been taken up or is already allocated; and what has been the number of male jobs per acre provided.

Mr. Skeffington

About 190 acres have been available for industrial use, and 8 acres have so far been developed. My information is that employment for 178 men, 22 male jobs per acre, has been provided.
