Stephen Hammond MP corrects answers to questions about schemes under construction and investment in the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
I regret to inform the House that there was an inaccuracy in the answer I gave to a supplementary question pursuant to an oral Parliamentary Question [UIN 137500] on 17 January 2013 (Official report, Column 1012) about schemes announced in the Autumn Statement 2011 which are now under construction.
The correct answer is that work is underway on over 90% of the projects and that construction has already begun on 13 of them.
There was also an inaccuracy in the answer I gave to a supplementary question pursuant to oral Parliamentary Question [UIN 137497] on 17 January 2013 (‘Official report’, column 1009). I would like to clarify that £600 million, not £650 million, has been invested in the Local Sustainable Transport Fund programme.
It is worth pointing out that, in addition to this figure, we have announced a further £107 million of investment specifically for cycling schemes, of which £42 million was announced at last year’s Autumn Statement.
