HC Deb 12 July 1983 vol 45 cc319-20W
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.
