§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of jobs in the pipeline for (i) Alyn and Deeside travel-to-work areas, (ii) Clwyd and (iii) Wales, respectively, at the latest available date.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Based on the latest available estimate, there are 1,750 manufacturing jobs in the pipeline for the Shotton travel-to-work area; 3,600 for Clwyd and 16,700 for Wales as a whole. This estimate relates only to manufacturing jobs which are expected over the next three years to four years from projects for which offers of selective financial assistance have been accepted or which have been allocated Government financed factory space.
