HC Deb 24 November 2000 vol 357 cc328-9W
Dr. Stoate

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how much money has been spent, in each of the past five years, on community road safety schemes in the UK; and what statistics his Department collects centrally on such schemes. [139472]

Mr. Hill

My Department receives figures annually from local authorities (in England) on road safety expenditure. Over the last five years expenditure has been:

Year £ million
1995–96 50
1996–97 55
1997–98 60
1998–99 40
1999–2000 60

Statistics for road safety schemes are not held centrally but are a matter for each local authority.
