Invest Northern Ireland

Volume 453: debated on Tuesday 28 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many visits have been made under the auspices of Invest Northern Ireland by potential inward investors to the East Londonderry constituency; and how many jobs have been created in the constituency in the last 12 months. (103290)

During the last 12 months there have been no visits by potential inward investors to the constituency.

Invest NI reports on jobs promoted rather than jobs created. Over the past 12 months they have supported externally-owned companies to safeguard 787 jobs in the East Londonderry constituency, and assisted almost 200 new locally-owned business starts which are expected to promote in the region of 260 jobs.
