§ Mr. William Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many inquiries have been received for factory space in mid-Wales during the course of the last 12 months; and how many new factories have commenced operation in this area during the same time.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
The five mid-Wales counties have been suggested by the Department to 52 firms from outside the Principality inquiring for factory space. We know of six manufacturing 29W establishments which have started production.
