HC Deb 29 July 1982 vol 28 c611W
Mr. Pendry

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list for Scotland all those expansion projects and new projects announced since May 1979; what is the number of jobs they are hoped to create; and over what time scale.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

Comprehensive information on expansion and new projects is not available, although those projects receiving selective financial assistance of £5,000 or more under section 7 of the Industry Act 1972 are listed quarterly in British Business. Since May 1979, 39,525 new jobs have been associated with offers of selective financial assistance, and these will arise over a number of years.
