HC Deb 09 February 1984 vol 53 c683W
Sir Dudley Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if the 2 per cent. carry forward facility announced by the Secretary of State for the Environment for local authority capital expenditure, Official Report, 17 November 1983, c. 525–528, also applies to local transport capital expenditure.

Mr. Ridley

Yes. The 2 per cent. carryover facility applied to the total of local authority capital expenditure including local transport. The transport capital allocations made in December included transport's share of the addition.
