Job Losses In The Welsh Economy

EDM number 2359 in 1992-93, proposed by Rhodri Morgan on 20/07/1993.

That this House is appalled at the announcement of the loss of 860 jobs in Wales, 490 at the Nuclear Electric power station at Trawsfynydd and American Brands Gallaher cigar division factory at Port Talbot as further evidence for the need for a high level of regional aid to assist the diversification of the Welsh economy; and calls on the Government to suspend its proposed downgrading of industrial development area coverage of Wales, until the injection of new employment equivalent to the jobs being lost has been secured.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
