HC Deb 12 January 1987 vol 108 c16W
32. Mr. O'Brien

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the current level of expenditure as determined by his Department for public transport in West Yorkshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Mitchell

Under the procedures provided by the Rates Act 1984 the expenditure level for West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Authority for 1986–87 was redetermined at £61.3 million on 20 December 1985. My right hon. Friend the then Secretary of State explained the considerations relevant to this decision in reply to a question on that date from my hon. Friend the Member for South Ribble (Mr. Atkins). I understand the PTA's budgeted expenditure for 1986–87 is £61.288 million.
