§ Mr. Evennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has received any representations from the Central Railway Group, regarding its proposal to promote a privately financed, large gauge freight railway line from the Midlands to the channel tunnel.
§ Mr. Freeman
The Central Railway Group has explained its proposals to me. I have sent it a letter setting out Government policy generally towards private sector investment in railways, a copy of which I have placed in the Library.
