§ 54. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Prime Minister whether the signature of the Kellogg Peace Pact has made any difference in the attitude of the Government towards the construction of a Channel tunnel?
§ Mr. THURTLE
Is the Prime Minister aware that not only this country but the whole of Eastern Europe has now renounced war as a means of national policy, and in these circumstances will he explain why the Government have not the courage of their public professions by agreeing to this particular project?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I do not think that it is a question of courage. It is perfectly obvious that there must follow on the signature of this Treaty a most careful consideration on the part of every signatory as to how it would affect their future policy. The Channel Tunnel is one of the questions which will have to be considered, and all I can say at the present time is that I have nothing to add to what I have already stated.
