HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c39W
27. Mr. Ron Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what proportion of local government budgets is accounted for by transport subsidies in the last financial year; and what is the estimate for the current financial year.

Mrs. Chalker

Expenditure on revenue support to public transport and concessionary fares by local authorities in England and Wales is estimated to comprise 3.5 per cent. of total budgeted current expenditure in 1883–84 and 3.6 per cent. in 1984–85.
