§ Mr. Costain
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will list the schemes so far approved under Section 48 of the Transport Act, 1968; and how many of them allow public authorities to undertake works of construction for activities unrelated to their basic functions.
§ Mr. Peyton
No proposals have been approved under Section 48 of the Transport Act, 1968, except those of the British Railways Board announced to the House on 8th December, 1969, by the previous Administration. These do not cover building construction.
