§ Mr. Norris
The most recent change in the Government's approach to the financing of local transport was the introduction of the package approach to funding in 1994–95. This enables local authorities to submit bids for packages of measures covering all forms of transport, and to do so in partnership with each other if they wish.
Information on earlier changes to the local transport financing system could be produced only at disproportionate cost. My Department publishes guidance on funding to local authorities in its annual transport policies and programme circulars, copies of which are deposited in the Library of the House.
