HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c550W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what criteria are applied to the provision of supplementary finance towards the cost of building new commuter railway stations.

Mr. David Mitchell

The central Government grant payments to British Rail for the passengers business are not for individual projects. County councils can include plans to contribute to the cost of new railway stations in their transport policies and programme and, if accepted, this expenditure would be eligible for transport supplementary grant.
