HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 cc502-3W
Mr. Harvey

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if it is the Government's policy to promote the designation of the Penzance-Bristol railway line as part of the trans-European rail network. [2356]

Mr. Watts

The inclusion of the Penzance-Bristol line in the draft trans-European rail network map was supported by the United Kingdom Government. The Council of Ministers reached a common position on the trans-European transport network at the June Council. The rail network map, as agreed by the Council, includes the Penzance-Bristol railway line.
