HC Deb 12 April 1976 vol 909 c427W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list in the Official Report the number of jobs that have been forecast at each of his advance factories opened in Wales since 1964 at their time of letting, together with the corresponding figures for the number of employees currently employed at each of these factories.

Mr. John Morris

This information is not available in the form requested. 8,300 jobs were forecast for advance factories occupied since 1964. Those in operation currently employ 5,500 people. Some of these factories are still in the process of manning-up.
