HC Deb 12 May 2003 vol 405 c132W
Norman Baker

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to establish compatibility of method between funding of rail schemes and road schemes. [112445]

Mr. Jamieson

Rail and road schemes are funded in ways that reflect the nature of the investment and of the delivery agents involved. Compatible methods are used for assessing the costs and benefits of rail and road schemes.
