§ 42. Mr. David Reed
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many new jobs are actually in existence and how many are projected for the future as a result of Industry Act assistance to the Northern Region.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
I regret that in-information about new jobs actually in existence is not readily available. Some 15,000 new jobs are expected to come into being over the next three years through projects in the Northern Region assisted under Section 7 of the Industry Act. Additional employment is being created through payments of regional development grant.
