§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he is taking to respond to job losses in the aerospace industry in Clwyd; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Redwood
I am sorry about the job losses announced in Clwyd. The Welsh Office and other Government agencies already operate a wide range of measures aimed at increasing employment opportunities throughout Wales. All these bodies will continue to look for and respond swiftly to opportunities that arise which have the potential to increase employment prospects. Of course, we stand ready to help, within our powers, where we can in these difficult cases.
