HC Deb 08 July 1996 vol 281 c66W
Mr. Brazier

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what percentage of capital expenditure on transport during the next financial year will be on(a) roads and (b) non-road transport; and what were the equivalent figures for 1986. [34699]

Sir George Young

The proportion of capital expenditure allocated to national and local roads in the current year is nearly 60 per cent., compared with 70 per cent. in 1986–87—but such an analysis is inevitably subject to fluctuations in the capital budget arising from major projects.
