§ Ms. Walley
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much of British Rail's investment in renewing and improving the railway since 1983 has been spent(a) in the United Kingdom and (b) in the United States of America.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
British Rail does not maintain separate detailed records of investment expenditure in this form. I understand that over 95 per cent. of BR's expenditure is placed with United Kingdom companies, and that no major capital expenditure has been placed in the United States of America.
