§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, further to his answer of 1 February to the hon. Member for Strathkelvin and Bearsden,Official Report, column 699, whether the 10 per cent. of routes electrified in Scotland include those under the control of Strathclyde PTE/section 20 areas.
§ Mr. Freeman
My previous answer did not include electrified routes in Strathclyde. Including those increases the percentage of BR's total route mileage in Scotland which is electrified, including projects approved or under construction, to around 23 per cent. In the Strathclyde area some 203 out of 282 route miles (72 per cent.) are electrified.
