§ 40. Mr. Norman Hogg
asked the Minister of Transport what arrangements he has made with the Board of British Railways to fund the future programme of electrification in Scotland.
§ Mr. Fowler
The funding of a major programme of electrification is a matter to be considered once the final report of the joint electrification review is available. Meanwhile, I am willing to consider any individual electrification pro-248W jects which the board proposes to carry out within its present investment ceiling.
