HC Deb 23 March 1987 vol 113 c18W
16. Dr. Marek

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what estimates he makes of the percentage of local labour employed in the construction of the Gresford to Pulford bypass.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Subject to temporary fluctuations as the work progresses, I estimate that about 70 per cent. of the hourly paid work force directly engaged by the main contractor will be recruited locally.
