§ Mr. Squire
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether the forthcoming legislation on the Channel fixed link will include the need to cater for a road link at some stage as mentioned in article 1 of the treaty between the United Kingdom and France.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
No. It is intended that the forthcoming legislation should cover only the existing Channel Tunnel Group-France-Manche proposal and that fresh powers would be required for the construction of a road link at a later stage.
