To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will give a breakdown of inward investment in Britain by standard English region and for Scotland and Wales for each year since 1979, showing the amount received in each region as a proportion of the total in each year.
The following are the Invest in Britain Bureau (IBB) figures for inward investments announced in each year since 1979 for the United Kingdom by standard English region, Scotland and Wales (with Northern Ireland added). Table 1 shows for each region the number of projects as a proportion of the total for each year. Table 2 shows for each region the number of associated jobs (both new and safeguarded) as a proportion of each year's total. The data include only those inward investment projects currently known to the IBB. The associated capital investment is not known.
