§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to be able to announce approval for further stages of the British Railways Board's £350 million investment programme in London and South-East England, and state the criteria he adopts for authorising expenditure on improvements listed in this programme.
§ Mr. Peyton
Individual projects are considered for investment approval as and when the Railways Board puts them forward. The criteria for rail investment in London and the South-East are those my hon. Friend gave the hon. Member in answer to his question about the Fleet Line on 16th June.—[Vol. 819, c.91.]
