Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) if he will provide a table showing the bids made by each county of Wales in the revised finance forms of the 1980–81 transport policy programmes submissions, under the following headings; public transport capital, highways capital, traffic management, parking capital, other capital, total capital, maintenance, revenue support, other current spending, total current and total transport supplementary grant eligible expenditure;

(2) if he will provide a table showing at November 1978 prices the total transport policy programme base programme bids for Welsh counties, the total expenditure accepted by Government, the proportion of the bid accepted and the transport supplementary grant paid for each year since 1975–76.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Transport policies and programmes are not statutory documents and it is for individual counties to decide whether to publish their bids. Details of past settlements are:

1975–76 83.205 19.483
1976–77 87.078 28.924
