HC Deb 10 July 2003 vol 408 cc881-2W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what policies(a) initiated and (b) managed by his Department since 2001 have had an impact on Pendle; and if he will make a statement. [124090]

Mr. McNulty

The Department for Transport has carried forward the policies that were initiated by predecessor departments.

Pendle benefits from policies managed by Lancashire county council. Lancashire received a total of £12.051 million in December 2002 for integrated transport measures as part of the 2003–04-transport settlement. This funding is being used by Lancashire to progress their Local Transport Plan, including a range of measures to tackle congestion, improve safety and enhance public transport provision throughout the county. It is for Lancashire to spend the allocation in accordance with local priorities.
