§ 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.
