HC Deb 10 June 1985 vol 80 c374W
36. Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what factors will most influence his decision on competing bids received by him for the Channel fixed link.

Mr. David Mitchell

The "invitation to promoters" of a Channel fixed link published on 2 April sets out the information required by the two Governments. We shall take into account all the areas covered in that document and any other wider implications that are relevant. The decision will be based on a balance of all these factors.
