HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c222W
54. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the President of the Board of Trade how much industrial building has been started and how much completed in Scotland since October, 1964; what is the estimate of new jobs, male and female, respectively, when these projects are fully manned; and what were the figures for a comparable period immediately prior to October, 1964.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Figures for the start of industrial buildings are no longer collected. In the period October, 1964 to June, 1968, 19.2 million sq. ft. of industrial buildings were completed in Scotland, expected by the firms concerned to give rise to 33,000 jobs for males and 22,000 for females. In the comparable period up to October, 1964, the figures were 15.9 million sq. ft., 28,000 jobs for males and 15,000 for females.
