To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much central Government funding has been allocated to (a) Suffolk County Council and (b) each local authority for road improvements in each year since 1997. (134669)

The Department placed in the Library of the House detailed information on the funding allocated to local authorities in the local transport capital settlements between 1997-98 and 2005-06 (inclusive) in response to a written parliamentary question in the other place on the 18 January 2006, Official Report, House of Lords, column WA122. Similar information was summarised per mile of road in a written response in the other place on 2 February 2006, Official Report, House of Lords columns WA77-79.

I also refer the hon. Gentleman to my answer of 22 March 2007, Official Report, columns 7048-50W, which provided further details of the capital funding provision for Suffolk and a number of other authorities in the Eastern Region.

The local transport capital settlement allocations for all transport authorities in England for 2006-07 are posted on the Department’s website:
