Cycling England: Expenditure

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much has been spent on Cycling England in the period during which this programme object had a comparability factor of zero per cent. for the purposes of the application of the Barnett Formula. (186866)

Expenditure previously recorded under The Cycling England programme is now carried within the local transport group of programmes. Annex C of the October 2007 edition of ‘Funding the Scottish Parliament, National Assembly for Wales and Northern Ireland Assembly: Statement of Funding Policy (SFP)’ shows this area of spending to be comparable in Wales. The SFP gives details of all comparability factors. For the period covered by the 2004 spending review, the comparability factors are published in the 2004 version of the Statement of Funding Policy and there was no separate Cycling England programme.
