HC Deb 20 March 2001 vol 365 c114W
17. Mr. Paul Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on local transport plans. [152924]

Mr. Hill

Authorities submitted their first full Local Transport Plans last July. In December we announced an £8.4 billion package for local transport improvements over the next five years to help deliver what local people want. Authorities will be submitting their first annual progress reports later this year and we shall be closely monitoring the delivery of schemes on the ground.
