§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the firms which have established themselves, or are in the process of establishing themselves, in enterprise zones in England; and how many employees each firm has, or will have, in the zones.
§ Sir George Young
The second report of the Enterprise Zones monitoring study, published in April 1983, shows that the number of firms and jobs newly established in the English enterprise zones between 1 June 1981 and 31 December 1982 was as follows:
Zone Firms Jobs Salford/Trafford 44 531 Wakefield 10 130 Dudley 36 243 Hartlepool 34 313 Corby 38 495 Tyneside 53 264 Liverpool 21 339 Isle of Dogs 54 254 Totals 290 2,569
Information about employment in individual firms was gathered in confidence and cannot be released.
I shall however, write to my hon. Friend with a list of the firms newly established in all the enterprise zones in the United Kingdom up to the end of May 1982, the latest date at which this detailed information is available.
