HC Deb 11 July 2002 vol 388 c1113W
Mrs. May

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the tram schemes(a) in operation, giving (i) the Government body responsible for oversight and (ii) the start date of the operation, (b) under appraisal and (c) under construction; and if he will make a statement. [684721

Mr. Jamieson

For parts(a) and (b), I refer the hon. Member to my previous replies of 2 July 2002, Official Report, columns 217–18W. There is only one tram scheme currently under construction—the Nottingham Express Transit (NET), which is due to open in November 2003. In addition, there are a further three schemes which are presently being procured: South Hampshire Rapid Transit System (SHRTS); Leeds Supertram; and the three extensions to Manchester Metrolink.
