HC Deb 23 February 1999 vol 326 cc216-7W
Mr. Hood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to work in partnership with local authorities to deliver an integrated transport network in Scotland. [70822]

Mr. McLeish

Last year's Scottish Transport White Paper recognises that local authorities will play a key role in the delivery of integrated transport.

We have recently issued consultation documents on Regional Transport Partnerships and Local Transport Strategies, and we are allocating £90 million over three years for a Public Transport Fund to assist local authorities in funding appropriate developments.
