HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 c10W
77. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Technology what is the estimated total investment in the electronics industry in Fife; and what prospects there are for expansion in the immediate future.

Dr. Ernest A. Davies

I regret that statistics of investment in the electronics industry in Fife are not available. In November, 1969, the 17 establishments in Fife in the electronics industry employed over 6,200 people, of whom nearly 2,300 were males. Prospects for further expansion are good and 3,000 jobs, including 900 far males, are expected to arise over the next four years.
