Local Government: Public Transport

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what role regional Ministers have in the allocation of regional transport funds. (261791)

Regional Ministers do not agree the regional transport funding allocations as this is the responsibility of the Transport Ministers. Regional Ministers however do work with regional partners to develop the regional priorities, providing advice and developing bids. They also support departmental Ministers to interpret the advice and have a role in disseminating messages in the region.
