§ 112. Sir T. Beamish
asked the Minister of Transport if he will issue a White Paper on the Government's policy with regard to the new proposals for a Channel Tunnel; and if he will give an assurance that public money will be refused until he is satisfied that the project is viable and in the national interest.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
My right hon. Friend will make a statement when he has reached a decision on the proposals just put to him. No public money would be committed before then.
