Mr. Ainger

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the cost per mile of maintaining mainline railway track and branch line railway track(a) throughout the British Rail network and (b) in the south Wales and western regions.

Mr. Freeman

My Department does not hold this information. Maintenance programmes and costs are a matter for the British Railways Board.
