HC Deb 25 May 1973 vol 857 c216W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many new jobs have been created in the counties of Merionethshire, Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, Breconshire and Cardiganshire, respectively, in the course of the past three years; and how many jobs have been lost in the same period in each of the counties, respectively.

Mr. Peter Thomas

Precise information about jobs created and jobs lost is not available, but an indication of net changes can be obtained by comparing levels of employment at different dates.

The following table shows changes in the estimated numbers of employees in employment between 1968 and 1971. Estimates for 1972 are not yet available:

Breconshire +290
Cardiganshire +340
Merionethshire -710
Montgomeryshire +1,390
Radnorshire +400

The estimates are subject to sampling and other errors.
