HC Deb 08 December 1980 vol 995 c249W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many jobs have been created as a result of advanced factory building in the Oldham area in each of the last five tears; and what is the number estimated for the current year.

Mr. David Mitchell

One advance factory of 900m2 was completed in 1979 Negotiations are proceeding with a prospective tenant company which, I understand, expects to occupy the factory in the new year, with the prospect of adding nine further jobs to its existing work force of 25.
