Oral Answers to Questions — Transport – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 28th April 1970.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Transport when the estimate was made of 8,000 accompanied vehicles as the average daily flow through the proposed Channel Tunnel in 1985.
Since this was revised following the White Paper of 1963, will my hon. Friend undertake to lay before the House all the questions that arose following the revision of the 1963 White Paper so that we may join in discussion of this important matter?
No, Sir. We think it would be misleading to publish in full at this stage. We think the right thing now is to await the final studies.
Will the hon. Gentleman say when he expects the final studies to take place? Does he not appreciate the
inconvenience for my constituents of having no firm proposal for the Channel Tunnel?
As soon as we are ready for the final studies the announcement will be made. That is when this will come before the House.
