Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how much his Department spent in Wales in each financial year since 1997; and what major projects in Wales received funding from his Department in each of those years. (306630)

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.

These figures exclude grant to local authorities, as this information is collated separately by the Department for Communities and Local Government, Department for Children, Schools and Families and Department for Work and Pensions and devolved Administrations.

The Total Expenditure on Services attributed to Wales by the Department since its formation in May 2002 is provided in the following table:

£ million

2002-03

165.8

2003-04

138.6

2004-05

172.8

2005-06

161.4

2006-07

138.4

2007-08

136.0

Further details of total expenditure on Wales can be found in Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) published by HM Treasury.

Details of expenditure on individual major projects should be sought from the devolved Administration for Wales.
