Channel Tunnel Freight Plans For The East Midlands
That this House is concerned that, despite the fact that the East Midlands is the fastest growing region in the United Kingdom and has one of the highest percentages of manufacturing employment in the United Kingdom, it is to suffer because of the decision not to establish an inter-modal European freight terminal directly in the region; views it as completely unsatisfactory that East Midlands companies under such a system wishing to use such a facility will be expected to transport their goods to a terminal in Birmingham, which is seen as neither a practical nor viable option for them; further sees such policy as detrimental to the Midland Main Line which may be placed in jeopardy due to reduced rail freight usage; and calls upon her Majesty's Government to reappraise the situation as a matter of urgency in the light of the many and varied representations made to them by Members of Parliament, local authorities and businesses in the areas concerned.
This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
