§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many new jobs the Government expects to be created in Scotland in 1971; and how many of these will be for men.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
I have been asked to reply.108W
Jobs expected to arise in Scotland within the next four years in authorised new industrial buildings and in buildings taken over by manufacturing industry total over 43,000 of which nearly 23,000 are for males. These figures are based on estimates provided by the firms undertaking the projects in question. I regret it is not possible to estimate how many of these will arise during 1971.
