§ The Minister for Local Government and Development (Mr. Graham Page)
My right hon. Friend is considering the application.
§ Mr. Moyle
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that, by this year, London Trans- 1480 port Executive will probably have powers to construct a tube to New Cross and that by next year we hope to have powers to construct a line to Lewisham? What is required is a decision by the Government to provide money to allow London Transport to go ahead with construction.
§ Mr. Spearing
Will the hon. Gentleman give an assurance that if a grant is given it will be no less than the 75 per cent. grant given on equivalent sums for roads?
