HC Deb 25 March 1998 vol 309 cc151-2W
Mrs. Ellman

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will ensure that the choice of site for the London terminal for the rail link to the Channel Tunnel meets the needs of the North West and Northern regions. [35742]

Dr. Strang

St. Pancras is the London terminal specified in both the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Act 1996 and the Development Agreement with London and Continental Railways. It would provide ready access to services from King's Cross and Euston to the North and North West of England. LCR also plan through international services to the West Coast Main Line via Stratford.
