Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are requiring the environmental assessment of the Channel Tunnel line to include an assessment of the tunnel alternative through South London, and if not, why not.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Transport (Lord Brabazon of Tara)

We understand that British Rail are examining a number of route options through South London including tunnels. They are taking full account of environmental factors.
