HC Deb 20 November 1995 vol 267 c37W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what percentage of jobs created by inward investment in the United Kingdom in each of the past three years are now located in Wales. [345]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The forecast job creation in Wales as a percentage of the United Kingdom total from inward investment by overseas owned companies in the past three years continues to be greater than our proportion of the United Kingdom population at about 13 per cent. in 1992-93, and almost 13 per cent. in 1993–94. In 1994–95 the figure was 8 per cent. These percentages are based upon information provided by companies at the time of the decision to invest and take no account of any subsequent decisions.
