HC Deb 02 February 1970 vol 795 cc29-30W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Minister of Technology if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the total figures of industrial development certificates issued for projects over 5,000 square feet in the areas of Nottinghamshire in the last 12 months compared with the number of industrial development certificates applied for, giv- ing the estimated additional employment, industry by industry.

Mr. Varley

During 1969, 84 industrial development certificates were issued for 1.4 million square feet in Nottinghamshire. These were estimated by the applicants to provide 2,080 jobs of which 1,380 are for males. During the same period, 4 applications for certificates were refused. I regret that statistics of approvals industry by industry are not available.
