HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 c25W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if the concept of protected expenditure levels will figure in his proposed legislation to abolish the transport functions of the Greater London council.

Mrs. Chalker

When LRT is set up, the GLC will have no functions involving a protected expenditure level. The control mechanism on LRT will be an external financing limit—a cash limit.
