Martin Linton

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much his Department and its predecessors spent on transport in London in each of the last five years; and what plans he has to finance new London transport schemes in 2003 to 2008. [100895]

Mr. Jamieson

The figures show the Treasury's analysis of public expenditure on Road and Transport in London taken from the annual Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA).

£ million
1997–98 1,394
1998–99 1,436
1999–2000 1,366
2000–01 1,396

From 2001/02 onwards, the Government's spending on transport in London, and its plans for the future are laid out in Table A1.1 of Annexe 1 to "Delivering Better Transport: Progress Report", published in December 2002. These are shown as follows:

£ million
2001–02 1,597
2002–03 2,189
2003–04 2,716
2004–05 2,579
2005–06 2,504
2006–07 2,616
2007–08 2,690

Decisions on individual schemes in London are a matter for the Mayor and Transport for London (TfL). London will also benefit from improvements to the National Rail network.
