HC Deb 13 March 1919 vol 113 c1460
54. Lieutenant-Colonel RAYMOND GREENE

asked the Prime Minister whether, before any steps are taken to carry out the proposed Channel Tunnel between England and France, the scheme will of necessity come before the House of Commons in the form of a Bill?

62. Major HILLS

asked the Prime Minister whether, before coming to a decision on the Channel Tunnel question, he will take into consideration the comparative cost, the speed in which it can be started working, and the value to our industry and commerce of a train ferry, or several train ferries, across the Channel as against a single Channel tunnel; and will he give an assurance that the House will have an opportunity of pronouncing on the question before the country is committed?


Before any action is taken in the matter the consideration referred to in the question of my hon. Friend the Member for Durham, would certainly be taken into account and the sanction of Parliament would be required.
