§ Mr. Milne
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will provide a list of the advance factories provided for the Blyth constituency since October, 1964, to the latest available date, the number of new jobs provided and the future 176W supply of jobs expected from these advance factories; and how many are waiting tenants.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
Since October, 1964, three advance factories have been built at Cramlington. There have been extensions to these facories and they now occupy in total an area of approximately 150,000 sq. ft. One advance factory of 20,000 sq. ft. has been built at Blyth. All these are occupied. Two more factories, totalling 40,000 sq. ft. are to built at Cramlington. We do not publish the number of people employed by individual firms but the six factories are expected, eventually, to provide about 1,300 jobs.
