HC Deb 24 January 2002 vol 378 cc1051-2W
Mr. Laurence Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will make a statement about the provision of extra resources for the improvement of railway facilities in the south-west. [29913]

Mr. Jamieson

Each individual rail project and improvements negotiated through franchise agreements will usually benefit more than one part of Britain. The SRA has therefore not attempted to break down its planned expenditure on a regional basis.
