HC Deb 20 January 2004 vol 416 cc1119-20W
Mr. Hoyle

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much investment there was in transport in(a) Lancashire and (b) Chorley in each of the last five years. [148220]

Dr. Howells

Lancashire has received:

Year £ million>
2000–01 10.896
2001–02 27.83
2002–03 29.704
2003–04 25.388
2004–05 29.202

The figure requested for Chorley cannot be disaggregated from the Lancashire totals identified above. However Chorley has benefited considerably from these monies; an example of which is the £2.873 million Chorley Bus Interchange completed in March 2003, which has brought attractive and safe conditions to bus travel in Chorley.
