[holding answer 11 January 1999]: As part of our commitment to integrated transport policies as set out in "A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone", in the 1999–2000 local transport capital settlement we increased support to local transport packages, local safety schemes and the maintenance of highways and bridges. We also reintroduced funding for rural and non-package minor works, which had been suspended for the two previous settlements. The information is shown in the following table.
