HC Deb 06 May 1986 vol 97 c6W
Mr. Chope

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what measures his Department is taking to make more information available to hon. Members about the proposed Channel tunnel.

Mr. David Mitchell

On 4 February the Government published a White Paper "The Channel Fixed Link" (Cmnd. 9735) which explained the basis of its choice of scheme and outlined the next steps. The promoters of the chosen scheme, Eurotunnel, formerly known as CTG—France-Manche, have arranged an exhibition in the North Tower foyer of the Department's offices at 2 Marsham street; it opens today and will run until 16 May. A member of Eurotunnel's staff will be present on weekdays between 12 noon and 6.30 pm to deal with any queries. I hope that as many Members of Parliament as possible will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the scheme.
