HC Deb 30 January 1985 vol 72 cc182-3W
Mrs. Peacock

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what guidance he has given to the metropolitan county councils under the provisions of the Transport Act 1983 about protected levels of revenue support to public transport in the next financial year.

Mr. Ridley

I have given these authorities guidance under the provisions of section 4(5) of the Transport Act 1983 that the maximum amounts of revenue grants which it would in my opinion be appropriate for them to make in the year beginning 1 April 1985 are as follows:

Authority Protected Expenditure Level (PEL)
£ million
Greater Manchester 45
Merseyside 39
South Yorkshire 32
Tyne and Wear 21
West Midlands 27
West Yorkshire 41
