Mr. Redwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what the expected annual investment spending this year is by London Underground; and what the figure was in 199697. 
Mr. Spellar: London Underground is currently forecasting that it will deliver investment expenditure of £422 million in 200102, against a Government target of at least £410 million. The equivalent investment figure for investment in the core underground network in 199697 at cash prices was £397 million.
Capital renewals accounted for £198 million of the £397 million expenditure in 199697. The estimated investment expenditure for 200102 reflects London Underground Ltd.'s adoption in 1999 of Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 15, which requires that such expenditure must now either be charged to cost of operations, or capitalised as an addition to fixed assets.
Mr. Cousins: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions whether he has proposed changes in the international seamen's certificate requirements to the relevant international organisations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jamieson: No such changes in requirements have been proposed. The modernisation of seafarer identity documentation is being considered within the International Labour Organisation, to which reference was made during the intersessional meeting in February of the International Maritime Organisation on maritime security.
