HC Deb 06 July 1983 vol 45 c96W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the total number of persons employed by community industry in Wales, Clwyd, the Alyn-Deeside travel-to-work area and the Wrexham travel-to-work area; and what was the monthly increase in community industry posts to the last month for which statistics are available.

Mr. John Stradling Thomas

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that on 9 June 1983, 1,032 persons were employed by community industry in Wales. No schemes are currently running in the Shotton and Wrexham travel-to-work areas or in Clwyd. Information in respect of the latter part of the question is not immediately available and I shall write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
