Regulation of access charges through the Channel Tunnel is undertaken by the Channel Tunnel Intergovernmental Commission (IGC) through its joint-economic committee. The Government have no current plans to change these arrangements.

The joint economic committee is investigating the charging regime in the tunnel to establish its level of consistency with European legislation. The report of the first stage of the committee's work was published in October 2011. A further report is planned to be published this autumn.
