HC Deb 18 February 1980 vol 979 c77W
Mr. Eggar

asked the Minister of Transport if he will list the different plans being considered by his Department for the construction of the Channel tunnel, explaining the different characteristics and specification of each plan.

Mr. Fowler

The only scheme currently before me is a joint British Rail and French Railways preliminary study for a single track tunnel. Sir Alec Cairncross is looking at the economic aspects of this proposal on my behalf. A copy of the British Rail report is available in the Library of the House.
