Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to his oral answer to the hon. Member for Gravesham (Mr. Arnold),Official Report, 4 December, column 5, if he will publish a disaggregated breakdown for each year since 1980 of the inward investment to Wales by (a) region and (b) company involved.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

For reasons of commercial confidentiality for a number of recorded cases, I cannot provide details of the companies involved. However, I will write to the hon. Member separately with details of the origin of recorded inward investment since 1983, together with the destination of that inward investment. A copy of that correspondence will be placed in the Library of the House.
