asked the Minister of Transport what proportion of the capital allocated by him to British Railways and British Road Services, respectively, has been used in respect of schemes in Scotland.

The Commission estimate that 11 per cent. of British Railways capital expenditure and 5 per cent. of British Road Services capital expenditure in 1960 was attributable to Scottish services. Comparable estimates for 1961 are about 10 per cent. and 8 per cent. These are not precise figures, since rolling stock and vehicles operate between Scotland and other parts of the country.
