§ Mr. John Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many new jobs are forecast to be created in the North Lanarkshire constituency in 1972 and 1973, respectively.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
I regret the information in the form requested is not available. However in the employment exchange areas which most closely correspond to the hon. Member's constituency firms estimate 1,260 jobs to arise within the next four years in authorised new industrial buildings and in industrial buildings taken over by manufacturing firms. In addition over 2,500 jobs are expected to arise from projects in neighbouring areas which are likely to benefit the North Lanarkshire constituency.
