asked the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to the number of former British Rail Engineering Ltd. employees at Shildon who were placed in employment by the British Rail Engineering Ltd. holding company set up for this purpose.

I understand that British Rail Engineering's three-year programme with the Shildon and Sedgefield development agency has already created 365 new jobs since it started at the end of last year. About 145 of these have been taken up by former BREL employees. The firms already assisted by BREL offer a potential for a total of 870 jobs over the next three years. I welcome this achievement by BREL and the local agencies involved.
