Mr. Stephen Twigg

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he plans to publish the formal amendment to the Channel Tunnel Concession Agreement setting out the terms on which this is extended to a total of 99 years. [84794]

Mr. Prescott

I have today placed in the Libraries of both Houses copies of Cm 4350, "The Channel Fixed Link: Amendment No 3 to Concession Agreement", setting out the text of the formal Amendment, as signed by the four parties to the concession agreement of 1986, under which the duration is extended until the 99th anniversary of the date on which that agreement came into operation.
