§ Mr. Prescott
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which trunk road building schemes are planned to receive Government expenditure in the years(a) 1993–94, (b) 1994–95 and (c) 1995–96; and how much each scheme will cost in total.
§ Mr. Rifkind
Trunk road building schemes which will incur works expenditure by Government in the three years from 1993–94 to 1995–96 comprise schemes already under construction at the start of 1993–94, and new starts during each of the three years.
I shall be announcing shortly new starts for 1992–93. The composition of new starts in subsequent years will depend on progress with statutory procedures and the availability of funds in those years.
Total provision for new construction is currently £1,395 million in 1992–93, £1,477 million in 1993–94 and £1,511 million in 1994–95.
