19. To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much funding was provided for rural transport in 2007 and 2006. (190992)

Our main support for rural transport has been through the Rural Bus Subsidy Grant and Rural Bus Challenge schemes. Funding provided under those schemes was £61.3 million in 2007 and £61.4 million in 2006. Local authorities also support rural transport through Revenue Support Grant and other resources.
