HC Deb 25 February 1971 vol 812 c238W
77. Mr. Sheldon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what studies have been carried out into the impact of the proposed Channel Tunnel on the economy and environment of the South-East.

Mr. Peyton

The implications of a Channel Tunnel were taken into account by the South-East Joint Planning Team whose report has been published. A special examination of the environmental aspects was carried out during 1968 and 1969 in conjunction with the Kent County Council, the South-East Economic Planning Council and other local interests.
