HC Deb 19 May 1980 vol 985 cc65-6W
Mr. Dan Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will list, by area, the factories and plants set up by Courtaulds Limited with Government financial assistance; how many jobs each such factory was designed to provide; what was the original cost of providing each job; which of the factories and plants have subsequently closed; how many workers have been made unemployed as a result of each closure; how many workers remain employed in each plant; what is the average cost of the remaining jobs in terms of the original grants; and whether he has taken any steps to recover money paid to Courtaulds Limited by way of grant or loan in cases of closure.

Mr. David Mitchell

It would involve disproportionate cost to provide the information requested, much of which is. moreover, commercially confidential.

Forward to
