asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many jobs have been created in Dundee between 1970 and the latest available date by firms that had set up in Dundee since 1945; and how many have been created by indigenous firms.
Information is not available in the form requested. For manufacturing industry, however, gross job increases in the Dundee employment exchange area over the period 1970–76 are shown below. The units that opened in 1950 or later are likely to have included some firms indigenous to Dundee. These gross job increases were offset by gross job decreases in manufacturing over the same period totalling 15,000. The figures do not cover units with fewer than 11 employees.
|No. of units expanding||Gross Job increase|
|Units opening before 1950||47||2,386|
|Units opening between 1950 and 1970||19||781|
|Units opening between 1970 and 1976||26||2,906|
