HC Deb 13 May 1985 vol 79 c62W
23. Mr. Hayes

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the value of British Rail's investment proposals which he has approved in the current year to date.

Mr. David Mitchell

Since the beginning of 1985, I have approved three investment proposals from British Rail, worth £96.5 million altogether — 240 medium-weight diesel multiple units, worth £60 million; 25 class 87 electric locomotives, worth £24 million; and the new Windsor link line, in Manchester, worth £12.5 million.
