HC Deb 21 March 2000 vol 346 c470W
Mr. Syms

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will give an itemised breakdown of the £1,550,000 budget of the Commission for Integrated Transport in 1999–2000. [115635]

Mr. Hill

The Commission for Integrated Transport's provisional budget for 1999–2000 had to be allocated well before its launch. A sum of £1.5 million was originally allocated from within DETR's programme budget for this purpose.

Because CfIT was not launched until July 1999, however, it will spend much less than the £1.5 million figure. Its projected spend to the end of this financial year is £269,000.

Projected spend to end of March 2000
Salaries 90,000
Consultancy 125,000
Travel and Subsistence 24,000
Hospitality 5,000
Publicity 25,000
Total 269,000
