§ Ms Coffey
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many civilian Ministry of Defence jobs there are within a 25-mile radius of(a) Bath and (b) Cheadle. 326W
The following points should be noted:
- (1) the records from which this data have been obtained do not differentiate between the various divisions and management companies within the GEC-Marconi Ltd. group.
- (2) where a contract was current in two or more financial years, it is included in the figures for each year concerned.
- (3) the figures do not include any contracts placed by Defence agencies since they took over their own contract administration.
I regret that the figures before 1990 are not immediately available and the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
§ Mr. Arbuthnot
The number of MOD civil servants employed within a 25-mile radius of(a) Bath and (b) Cheadle was 8,674 and 600 respectively on 1 April 1995.
