To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with the First Secretary on the number of defence-related jobs in Wales. 
§ Mr. Touhig
The defence industry supports many thousands of high quality jobs in Wales and we are keen to encourage further investment in this area. To this end, my right hon. Friend and I have regular discussions with the Assembly and with Cabinet colleagues to explore the possibilities for securing more such quality jobs for Wales.
