§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many companies which have used regional aid to locate in Wales have subsequently closed down their enterprises and moved out of the Principality once the period of special incentives has expired; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
The operations of companies in receipt of regional selective assistance are monitored only for the duration of the project. Systematic information on the activities of companies following the completion of such projects is not readily available and can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
