Written statement to Parliament

Ministerial correction

This speech was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Correction to the ministerial statement on 31 October 2013.

On 31 October 2013, (Official Report, columns 1124-1125), in the course of my statement to the House during the report stage of the High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill, I quoted a figure for the annual departmental budget for the Department for Transport.

The figure quoted was actually a figure for the government’s annual capital investment budget.
