HC Deb 13 November 1984 vol 67 cc169-70W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of (a) the number of service industry jobs created in Wales since 1979 and (b) the number of manufacturing jobs created in Wales since 1979.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Comprehensive information is not available for either the service industries or the manufacturing sector. However, since 1 May 1979 projects for which offers of selective financial assistance were accepted, or which were allocated Government-financed factories, promised to provide over 67,000 jobs.
