§ Sir Raymond Gower
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of industrial and employment prospects in Wales and in South Glamorgan for the next 12 months; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John Morris
The current economic problems affect Wales and South Glamorgan as they do other parts of the United Kingdom. But the important new legislative initiatives which the Government are bringing forward will be of major significance in protecting and creating employment in the longer term.
