Channel Tunnel And Ozone Depletion

EDM number 903 in 1992-93, proposed by Simon Hughes on 19/11/1992.

That this House notes that an estimated 25 tonnes of ozone-destroying HCFCs are being used in the construction and operation of the Channel Tunnel air conditioning system based in the Folkestone and Hythe constituency of the Secretary of State for the Environment; regrets the Secretary of State for the Environment's refusal to instruct Eurotunnel to use the non-toxic alternatives available for the air conditioning system which will use HCFC-22; believes that this short-sighted specification will lead to further destruction of the ozone layer; further believes that as a prestige project the Channel Tunnel should have set an example to industry by using safe alternatives to HCFCs which are available; and calls on the Secretary of State to recommend, to the binational intergovernmental commission that ozone-friendly alternatives to HCFCs be used in the costruction and oeration of the Channel Tunnel.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
