§ 54. Mr. RONALD M'NEILL
asked the Prime Minister whether he has been made aware of an attempt to revive the project 1401 of a Channel Tunnel; whether the present proposal differs in any material respect from that which was condemned by military opinion many years ago and was consequently vetoed by the Government; whether he has any information showing that military opinion regarding the project has changed; and if he will undertake that the Government will give no sanction to the construction of a Channel Tunnel until the subject has been again considered by a committee of naval and military experts, and until this House has had an opportunity of discussing it?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The investigation which was promised on 5th August, 1913, in reply to a deputation representing the Committee of Members of the House of Commons in favour of the construction of a Channel Tunnel is not yet completed. It is not considered desirable to give a detailed reply to the questions formulated until the conclusion of the inquiry.
