HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c130W
Mr. Nicholls

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to review the use of the Private Finance Initiative to build public roads. [7876]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The Government has conducted a review of PFI and we are taking measures to reinvigorate it. Private financing has been shown to offer value for money in the procurement of DBFO projects. Value for money would be critical to our consideration of any future projects taken forward under private financing arrangements.
