§ Mr. Michael Forsyth
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, pursuant to the answer of 5 May, Official Report, column 392, if he will list those capital projects that have received support from his Department since 1983, about which his Department has maintained a record; and what was the expenditure involved in each case.
§ Mr. Ancram
A list of the kind requested could only be compiled at disproportionate cost. Information about capital projects in Scotland funded by central Government expenditure is available in successive editions of the Supply Estimates for vote XVI (vote XV before 1986–87); and of "Public Expenditure: A Commentary on the Scotland Programme" copies of which were sent to my hon. Friend on publication. Information at project level about Government-supported expenditure by non-departmental public bodies, local authorities and the private sector is not held centrally.
