HC Deb 05 May 2000 vol 349 c237W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will state(a) the resident unemployment and (b) the number of existing manufacturing jobs in each of the electoral wards of the North-East Region which were (i) included in and (ii) excluded from the European-aid approved map in recent changes. [120206]

Mr. Caborn

The information on resident unemployment counts has been placed in the Library of the House. Due to commercial confidentiality the majority of the information on manufacturing jobs is not available at individual ward level. Where such information is available, it has been incorporated within the tables on unemployment.
