asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what has been the total amount of Government grants given to the conurbations of Liverpool, Tyneside, Birmingham, London and Manchester during the past 10 years for road and rail projects that are related to transportation policies;(2) what were the total Government grants for transportation projects paid to the conurbations of Liverpool, Tyneside, Birmingham, London and Manchester per year over the past 10 years expressed on a per capita basis.

Information in the form requested is not available. The new system of transport supplementary grant begins on 1st April next, and local authority boundaries and functions have altered substantially. In addition, not all Exchequer grants can be attributed to particular transport schemes.
