In a white paper published on Sept. 12, 1972, the terms under which private capital raised on the international markets can be used to finance the Channel Tunnel have been set out. At the same time, the British Government has declared itself in favour of building the tunnel, subject only to Parliamentary approval and the favourable results of further technical and revenue studies to be carried out next year which form Phase II of the whole project. The French Government has for many years favoured construction of the tunnel, and approval of the project by the British Parliameter will remove the last real barrier.
