NOT 5,000 jobs then!

The consortium behind the scheme, Metrix, has said around 2,200 jobs would be created, most in security, cleaning and catering, with around 800 building workers employed during the the four-year construction period.

As we said all along ....not 5,000 jobs
NO great careers here for children of wales!

First Minister Rhodri Morgan’s new year message 2007 " I hope that construction machinery will move onto the St Athan site to start work on the £5bn military training academy at the end of the year. This will be a major boost for Wales, bringing 5,000 jobs, many of which will be highly skilled."
So wrong!



Welsh Secretary Peter Hain was wrong whjen he said its a "tremendous" opportunity adding that the range of jobs created as a result of the military academy would be huge.

John Smith MP was wrong when talking of  "the 5,000 direct jobs it will create" and for telling staff and children in the Vale of Glamorgan schools of job opportunities that were never there!
