HC Deb 09 November 1989 vol 159 c714W
Mr. Clay

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimates he has as to the number of full-time equivalent jobs that will arise within(a) the Hylton colliery area and (b) the Southwick shipyard area of the Sunderland enterprise zone by the end of each year from 1990 to 1994, inclusive, listing the estimated numbers separately for each of the areas.

Mr. Moynihan

It is estimated that, when fully developed, these and the other parts of the proposed Sunderland enterprise zone may together give rise to some 3,000 to 4,000 jobs. It is not practicable to break this down further, as the timing and location will depend inter alia on the progress of reclamation and development and the decisions of individual firms.
