HC Deb 22 February 1980 vol 979 c561W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Minister of Transport what proportion of the money spent on rail electrification since nationalisation has been spent in England, Scotland and Wales, respectively.

Mr. Fowler

British Rail's records on this go back only to 1964. Since then expenditure on fixed electrification infrastructure totals £98.6 million in England and £75.3 million in Scotland (at out-turn prices). There are at present no electrified lines in Wales, but some lines in Wales are included in the options being considered as part of the joint review of the case for a programme of main-line electrification.
