HC Deb 17 February 1983 vol 37 c227W
Mr. Alan Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish the evidence on which he based his statement, Official Report, 7 February, c. 618, that Her Majesty's Government had attracted more jobs than in any previous period in modern Welsh history; and how many of these new jobs were in projects already committed in May 1979.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I refer the right hon. Member to the reply I gave to the right hon. and learned Member for Aberavon (Mr. Morris) on 14 February.—[Vol. 37, c.15–17] The estimates for the period since May 1979 do not include jobs in projects committed prior to that date.
