§ Chris Ruane
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what funds he has allocated for rail track and660W station improvements in the last three years; and how much of this funding has been spent in North Wales. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
Most public funds for railways are channelled through franchise support payments and cannot be allocated to specific expenditure. The Strategic Rail Authority has recently awarded over £2.4 million of funding from its Rail Passenger Partnership scheme for the 'Inform Cymru' project, providing customer information systems at stations along the Cambrian Line.
