Rail Links

Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will list the principal destinations which have no railway station. [5523]

Transport Links

Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions (1) how much is expended by the Government on the maintenance of transport links between Great Britain and Northern Ireland; [5543]

The Scottish Executive subsidises services to offshore islands for which it is accountable to the Scottish Parliament. Responsibility for expenditure on transport links in the three years prior to the introduction of devolution lies with the Secretary of State for Scotland.
