HC Deb 20 April 2004 vol 420 c453W
Linda Perham

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the options for financing Crossrail. [166185]

Dr. Howells

Adrian Montague's detailed advice on the current Crossrail proposals raises complex issues and requires careful consideration against pressures on transport spending, especially on rail. My right hon. Friend will make a statement in due course.
