43. Mr. Nicholas Bennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much will be invested in road and rail over the next three years.

Mr. Portillo

The figures requested are as follows:

£ billion
1990–91 1991–92 1992–93 Total
National roads12 1.7 1.8 1.8 5.3
Rail13 1.6 2.1 2.3 6.0
1 Local authorities also invest in road and rail, including expenditure on structural maintenance of local roads which falls within authorities' current expenditure budgets. The level of investment undertaken is a matter for the authorities concerned. For 1990–91 estimates of probable investment in local roads and non—BR rail systems are over £950 million and over £60 million respectively.
2 Including structural maintenance.
3 British Rail and London Regional Transport. Future investment by London Regional Transport has not yet been allocated between rail and non-rail expenditure (which is currently running at £50 million per annum).
