34. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has completed his consideration of the Tyneside Rapid Transit Plan; and whether he will make a statement, in view of the importance of these proposals for the development of Tyneside.

Mr. Peyton

The Tyneside Passenger Transport Executive has applied for grant towards the cost of this scheme. My right hon. Friend has promised a decision by the end of this year.
