HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c450W
Mr. Shore

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his estimate of the abandonment cost to the Government of a decision not to proceed with the building of a Channel Tunnel at the end of Phase II in May 1975.

Mr. Peyton

The cost to be met by the United Kingdom Government in the event of a decision to abandon the Channel Tunnel project at the end of Phase II would vary according to the circumstances. In the worst case, it should not exceed £22 million.
