§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many jobs have been created by each local enterprise company in(a) manufacturing and (b) services industry in each of the last five years for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Stewart
The local enterprise companies have not been in existence for five years. Information on the jobs that they have created during the period since they were established is not held centrally in the form requested. I have therefore asked the chairmen of Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to respond direct to the hon. Member about this matter.
