HC Deb 11 March 1971 vol 813 cc161-2W
56. Mr. John Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will make a statement on the fall of 800 expected jobs over the next six years in the pipeline for the Port Talbot area, and set out the causes.

Sir J. Eden

Estimates of jobs in prospect give only some general indication of trends in employment. Comparisons between individual months and for small areas can therefore be misleading.
