§ Mr. Mudd
asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many applications for assistance under the provisions of the Industry Act have been received by his Department in respect of the county of Cornwall from 1st March 1974 to the latest date for which figures are available; and if he will indicate the number of approvals given, including the number of projects assisted and the number of jobs either created or saved.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
From 1st March 1974 to 31st May 1975, 39 applications for regional selective assistance under Section 7 of the Industry Act were received for projects in the South-West development area. Twenty-four offers were made in the same period in respect of 22 projects expected to lead to the creation of 1,255 new jobs and the safeguarding of a further 374. I regret that separate information for the county of Cornwall is not readily available.
