HC Deb 11 January 2000 vol 342 c115W
33. Ms Ryan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on measures taken to provide the travelling public with a one-stop national passenger information system. [103285]

Mr. Hill

The national public transport information system is being developed by partnerships of transport operators and local authorities.

Government have provided Supplementary Credit Approvals to local authorities of £1 million in 1998–99 and £3.3 million in 1999–2000 to assist with the capital requirements of the project.

The service is expected to be introduced progressively throughout Great Britain during 2000.
