Mr. Eyre

For the current financial year expenditure of £75.664 million by Merseyside county council was accepted for transport supplementary grant. This included £34.931 million on revenue support for bus and rail services. The actual transport supplementary grant payment for the year is £30.546 million. In addition support for transport expenditure is provided through rate support grant, and the Merseyside passenger transport executive also benefits from new bus grant and fuel duty rebate.
