HC Deb 15 March 1994 vol 239 c653W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will give details of all grants paid in the last 12 months(a) under the freight facilities grant scheme and (b) in respect of the new track areas grant scheme; how much is available for grant; and how applications are to be made.

Mr. Freeman

Payments totalling £2 million have been made to five companies during the last 12 months. In addition, two new grants have been awarded on which no claims have yet been submitted. No payments can be made under the track access grant scheme until it is introduced next month. The provisional budget for the next three years for both grants is £43 million. Guidance for applicants will be published shortly.
