HC Deb 29 April 1996 vol 276 c333W
Ms Janet Anderson

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list the revenue spending estimated by his Department in connection with the private finance initiative for(a) 1995–96, (b) 1996–97 and (c) 1997–98. [26637]

Mr. Willetts

The Cabinet Office, including the Office of Public Service, Her Majesty's Stationery Office and the Central Office of Information have not yet approved any projects under the PFI. The Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency hopes to involve private finance in the provision of the metropolitan telecommunications service. The precise level of revenue spending will not be determined until detailed negotiations are completed.
