HL Deb 14 November 1988 vol 501 c912WA
Lord Jenkin of Roding

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are aware of the initiative launched by the Merseyside Chamber of Commerce and Industry to promote a "Liverpool Land-Bridge" to link North America with mainland Europe via the Port of Liverpool and the Channel Tunnel; and whether they are willing in principle to support the studies to test the viability of the proposal.

Lord Brabazon of Tara

We are aware of this initiative. The Government believe that it is for commerce and industry to assess the prospects for a successful project.
