Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 5 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What percentage of optimism bias uplift is included in the current estimate of the total cost of the Crossrail project; and [HL15]

What is the breakdown of funding sources for the construction of Crossrail between (a) central government; (b) Transport for London; (c) other public sector funding; (d) each individual company which has committed funding. [HL17]

I refer the noble Lord to the Written Statement on Crossrail made by the Secretary of State for Transport on Monday 26 November (Official Report, cols. WS 133-34).
