HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c36W
11. Mr. Waller

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the proposed Channel link.

Mr. Ridley

I now expect to receive in the new year the report by a group of British and French banks studying the possibility of private sector financing of the various Channel link schemes. The report will then have to be considered by both Governments. I cannot say when I will be ready to make a statement.
