HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c216W
Mr. Mikardo

asked the Minister of Transport by what percentage British Rail's aggregate actual expenditure has turned out to be above or below its estimated expenditure for investment projects which were approved by his Department during a recent year and have been completed.

Mr. Marsh

The Railways Board tells me that, in respect of specific approvals given in the period May, 1965, to April, 1966, it expects the aggregate expenditure to exceed the aggregate authority by about 4 per cent.
