HC Deb 04 November 2002 vol 392 c3W
Mr. Chope

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will set out the nature and extent of the financial contribution by the Strategic Rail Authority to the package of measures to increase security at the Fréthun Rail freight yard; and if he will make a statement. [78907]

Mr. Jamieson

The Strategic Rail Authority has undertaken to contribute around half of the £7.5 million cost of fixed security installations at the Fréthun freight yard, by means of a freight facilities grant. The contribution is subject to the provision of project and budgetary information (which has now been received), confirmation of completion of works and an independent verification of the works by UK security experts.
