§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) how many secured jobs have been created since 1975 by the Welsh Development Agency; 
(2) what quantities of land have been (a) auctioned off or otherwise sold and (b) acquired in each year since 1975 by the Welsh Development Agency; and if he will make a statement on the employment impact of the land sales. 
§ Mr. Hague
I have set the agency a target for 1996–97 of creating or safeguarding 12,500 jobs in Wales. This will be achieved through a variety of programmes which are to be funded by some £80 million in receipts—excluding receipts from European programmes—and £40 million in grant in aid; the property disposal programme will contribute towards the receipts total.
