§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the number of jobs created in Dundee since 1975 involving foreign investment; and if he will list the number of companies involved and their country of origin.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
Complete information on jobs created by foreign investment in Dundee is not available. Since 1975, however, nine offers of selective financial assistance, associated with the creation and safeguarding of 2,760 jobs, have been made to overseas-owned companies. These offers were made to six United States-owned companies.
