HC Deb 24 February 1986 vol 92 cc435-6W
Mr. Moate

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the implications of the decision to proceed with a fixed Channel link for his policy towards the creation of enterprise zones in Kent and in particular, the Isle of Sheppey.

Mr. MacGregor

The Government will be prepared to consider any evidence that action needs to be taken in relation to employment in particular locations in Kent. However, the link is unlikely to affect employment adversely in Kent as a whole.
