Mr. Tom Harris: BRB (Residuary) Ltd. (BRBR) was formally created in February 2001 when the assets and liabilities of the British Railways Board (BRB) were transferred to the Strategic Rail Authority. Prior to 2001, the functions of BRBR were discharged by BRB and details of the budget and financial results during this period can be found in BRBs historic accounts. Between 2001 and 2005 BRBR was a subsidiary of the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA) and details of its income and expenditure budget are published in the SRAs annual report and accounts, copies of which are in the Library of the House.
In October 2005, ownership of BRBR formally transferred from the SRA to the Secretary of State pursuant to a Transfer Scheme under the 2005 Railways Act. The latest results for the company which include its budget are available on BRBRs website at:
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much has been spent on Cycling England in the period during which this programme
object had a comparability factor of zero per cent. for the purposes of the application of the Barnett Formula. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: Expenditure previously recorded under The Cycling England programme is now carried within the local transport group of programmes. Annex C of the October 2007 edition of Funding the Scottish Parliament, National Assembly for Wales and Northern Ireland Assembly: Statement of Funding Policy (SFP) shows this area of spending to be comparable in Wales. The SFP gives details of all comparability factors. For the period covered by the 2004 spending review, the comparability factors are published in the 2004 version of the Statement of Funding Policy and there was no separate Cycling England programme.
Mr. Randall: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many consultation documents on the expansion of Heathrow airport have been sent by post to (a) businesses and (b) residents in wards in each London borough.

This described the approach we have adopted for distributing the Adding Capacity at Heathrow Airport consultation documents. In view of the number of ways in which consultation documents have been made available, it is not possible to determine precisely the split between documents sent to businesses and residents and the number sent to wards in each London borough.
