§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has received from London Regional Transport or London Underground Ltd. concerning the expenditure necessary to attain and maintain adequate mechanical and civil engineering standards on their underground system; what reply he has sent; and on where he dissents from any such estimate.
§ Mr. Freeman
The whole question of the funding requirement for London Transport over the next three 109W years is being discussed as part of the current public expenditure round. Under the circumstances it would be inappropriate to detail bids by individual LT subsidiaries.
