Transport: Expenditure

Volume 502: debated on Thursday 10 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how much his Department spent per capita on transport (a) revenue and (b) capital schemes in (i) England, (ii) each Government region and (iii) the City of York Council area in each year since 1996-97. (304547)

The Department for Transport publishes estimates of its total expenditure on services per head by region and country in its annual report. These figures rest on a number of assumptions, for example about how total expenditure on strategic highways and rail should be attributed to different regions, and figures are not available below regional level. The report does not include the split between revenue and capital schemes.

However, a further analysis showing the breakdown between revenue and capital schemes per capita for the Department since its formation in May 2002 is provided in the following table:
