HC Deb 06 June 1991 vol 192 c280W
Mr. Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects direct passenger services to operate between Scotland and the channel tunnel.

Mr. Freeman

British Rail awaits proposals from the manufacturers on the delivery and cost of trains for through day services between places north of London and the continent, and do not expect these trains to be ready before 1994. British Rail still plans to run through night services from the opening of the channel tunnel.
