Notes:

1. Population figures: Mid-year estimates, GRO(S) 2003.

2. Piers and Harbours grants are allocated on a project basis and not on a year-by-year basis. The figures included therefore reflect expenditure as claimed by the relevant authorities.

Allocations were also made to Strathclyde Passenger Transport Authority (SPTA) from the Public Transport Fund and the Integrated Transport Fund as follows:
