Extract from a letter from the Northern
Ireland Office to the Clerk of the Committee
Thank you for your letter of 8 March. I apologise
for the delay in responding.
On your first query about transport expenditure,
DRD have been able to obtain a copy of projections prepared by
DETR for Northern Ireland's "Barnett share" of the increases
in capital expenditure in roads and transport for England, as
set out in Transport 2010.
In the attached table, the estimated "Barnett
share" has been added to a provisional cash baseline for
roads and transport expenditure in 2001-02 to give projections
for the total investment in Northern Ireland, in cash terms. DRD
have apologised for the earlier confusion and hope that these
figures answer your query.
