§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has any plans to change the method of pricing involved in the cost-benefit analysis, COBA 9, presently used by his Department.
§ Mr. Atkins
All the major economic parameters used in COBA 9 are kept under continuous review and adjustments made periodically. A number of major revisions have been made in the last three years. I have no plans, at present, to make any further revisions.
