HC Deb 09 July 1990 vol 176 c85W
24. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement about public transport in Greater Manchester.

Mr. Freeman

This is essentially a matter for the operators and the passenger transport authority and executive. The Government are at present making resources available for two major projects to improve public transport in Manchester, Metrolink and the airport rail link.
