Mr John Spellar (Minister of State, Northern Ireland Office; Warley, Labour)
Letter from Dr. Malcolm McKibbin to Lady Hermon, dated
You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about expenditure on roads in Northern Ireland in each of the last three years. I have been asked to reply as these issues fall within my responsibility as Chief Executive of Roads Service.
Resources and Capital expenditure levels for the three years ended March 2004 are provided in the Table below.
|Total expenditure on roads||197,171||218,303||253,312|
(30) The resource figures include expenditure on operating and maintenance, and administration costs. It excludes: income; depreciation; cost of capital; expenditure on liability claims; notional costs; and exchange gain/(loss).
(31) The capital figures include expenditure on roads and bridges, car park and ferry capital, and information technology. It excludes profit/(loss) on disposal of assets.
I hope this information is helpful.
