§ Mr. Gregory
asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many investment projects put forward by British Rail since May 1979 have been approved by him.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
Of the 23 projects submitted to my Department in this period 14 have been approved in whole or part, 2 rejected, and 6 withdrawn by the board. I have one proposal — for east coast main line electrification—before me at present.
