HC Deb 19 November 1984 vol 68 c4W
Sir Raymond Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many new jobs have been created in Wales and in the Vale of Glamorgan, respectively, in each of the last four years.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Comprehensive information on jobs created is not available. However, since 1 May 1979, projects for which offers of selective financial assistance have been accepted or which were allocated Government-financed factories promised over 67,000 jobs in Wales as a whole. For the same period the figure for the Vale of Glamorgan district is 1,150.
