HC Deb 24 February 1971 vol 812 c140W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many new jobs, male and female, are known to be available in each new town this year.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The number of new jobs cannot be forecast with accuracy, but the development corporations estimate that those arising this year from known industrial projects might be as follows:

Male Female Total
Cumbernauld 209 21 230
East Kilbride 405 120 525
Glenrothes 250 80 330
Irvine 371 166 537
Livingston 980 300 1,280

Further new jobs could arise in services and commerce, and from the letting of advance factories, but the number cannot be forecast.
