HC Deb 24 February 1971 vol 812 c168W
84. Mr. John Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many new jobs are in the pipeline to be sited in the Aberavon constituency at present; and how this compares with the situation in June, 1970.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Jobs expected to arise over the next four years in the Port Talbot group of employment exchange areas in authorised new industrial buildings and in existing buildings taken over by manufacturing industry total about 4,800 compared with about 5,600 in June, 1970. These figures are based on estimates by the firms concerned. I regret that figures for the Aberavon constituency are not available.
