§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many firms have been granted industrial development certificates in respect of intended development in Wales, since 1964; how many of these firms subsequently established new operations in Wales; how many of these operations are still active; and how many people are currently employed in them.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
I have been asked to reply.
I regret that the information asked for is not readily available. The table below shows the number of certificates issued, schemes completed and the expected employment as it was estimated by the companies concerned at the time of application.
