HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c318W
Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has to reopen discussions with the French Government as to the possibility of building the cross-Channel Tunnel.

Mr. Fowler

As the hon. Member will be aware, a report on preliminary studies of a single track rail tunnel by the British and French Railways was sent to my predecessor early this year. I shall be considering that report, but the appropriate stage for any possible discussion between Governments has not yet been reached.
