§ Mr. Ian Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the expected outturn for British Rail's external financing for the 1990–91 financial year.
British Rail's external financing requirement for 1990–91 was £1,016 million. This represents an overshoot of £316 million on the revised limit of £700 million. British Rail will publish full details of the 1990–91 financial year in the annual report and accounts in July.
