§ Mr. Alexander
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will estimate the average cost of establishing a home zone. 
§ Mr. Hill
The cost of establishing a home zone will vary greatly with the size of the zone and the extent of works involved. Information from the pilot projects now being monitored suggests that, in very preliminary estimates, it would be reasonable to use an indicative range of £500-£2,000 per household. But the costs of individual schemes could be slightly less or substantially more than these figures. These are early days, and we shall keep the estimates under review in the light of increasing experience.
