asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the number of new jobs which have been created and the number of redundancies which have occured in the manufacturing sector for the Caernarfon employment exchange area over the past 12 months.

Information is not available in the form requested. However, as regards redundancies, I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that, on the basis of notifications involving 10 or more workers, the number of redundancies recorded as due to occur between February 1979 and January 1980 was 19.In the same period an advance factory allocation and offers of selective financial assistance were made for projects which were expected eventually to employ 282 people.
