Transport: One-off Grants

Volume 688: debated on Wednesday 17 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much the Department for Transport has given to each local transport authority in England in one-off grants in each of the last five years. [HL1309]

Most support for transport is provided to local authorities in England through revenue support grant, although the Department for Transport also provides a few specific grants. The main grant determinations are posted on the department's website.

Several of these grants, for example rural bus grant, provide continuing rather than single-year support. Some support for specific major investments is made by allowing sufficient provision within revenue support grant to enable the authority to borrow. There is thus no clear category of one-off grants.

The department's annual reports summarise the support it has provided to local authorities:

Substantial grants, together with provisions affecting revenue support grant, include:

the local transport capital settlement
