HC Deb 25 June 1984 vol 62 c335W
17. Mr. Hubbard-Miles

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many square feet of factory space have been let by Government agencies in Wales in the latest year for which figures are available; and how these figures compare with those for 1978.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

In 1983 the Welsh Development Agency, Development Board for Rural Wales and Cwmbran development corporation formally allocated 2.1 million sq ft of factory space. Comparable figures for the 1978 calendar year are not available, but the equivalent figure for 1978–79 was 1.26 million sq ft.
