HC Deb 24 July 1950 vol 478 c7W
78. Mr. Thurtle

asked the Minister of Transport what recent report he has received from his representative on the committee dealing with the co-ordination of the highways systems of Europe; and whether his Department will propose the creation of a Channel tunnel as a means of improving the links between the British and European highway systems.

Mr. Barnes

I assume that my hon. Friend is referring to the Working Party on Highways of the Inland Transport Committee of the Economic Commission for Europe. As this Working Party completed its work in July, 1949, there has been no reason for me to receive any recent report from my representative on it. My Department would not, in any case, propose the creation of a Channel tunnel.
