HC Deb 19 November 1971 vol 826 cc245-6W
Mr. Gwynoro Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will now give the details of the projects being undertaken this winter as a result of his plans for additional public expenditure to alleviate the unemployment problem.

Mr. Peter Thomas

For reasons given in my reply of 18th October to my hon. Friend the Member for Pembroke (Mr. Nicholas Edwards) it is not possible to give a detailed breakdown project by project. However, a high proportion of the total expenditure of £21 million will be committed by April, 1972 and on present estimates work to the value of about £6 million will have been carried out before then.
