§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the numbers of jobs in the pipeline for the next five years in Wales and Clwyd.
§ Mr. John Stradling Thomas
The most recent estimate remains that of 15,000 manufacturing jobs in the pipeline for Wales, of which 3,500 are in Clwyd. This estimate relates only to manufacturing jobs which are expected over the next three to four years from projects for which offers of selective financial assistance have been accepted or which have been allocated Government-financed factory space.
