§ 33. Mr. Carrington
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport by how much investment in London commuter services will increase over the next three years.
§ Mr. Portillo
London Regional Transport and BR's Network SouthEast plan to invest about £3.4 billion over the next three years (including £0.5 billion for the Jubilee line extension). That is £1.6 billion more than in the three years to April 1990, an increase of nearly 70 per cent. in real terms. Most of that investment will benefit services used by commuters.
