asked the Minister of Transport what steps have been taken by the EEC Commission to establish a transport infrastructure for Europe, and to assess the implication of such a project for the United Kingdom; and what is the total cost envisaged.

Relevant proposals from the EEC Commission, and their implications for the United Kingdom, were dealt with in the memorandum which my Department submitted to the Select Committee on transport on 11 March 1980. What the proposals would cost is not yet clear. The one substantial recent development has been a Commission proposal for Community aid under the scheme to be extended to countries outside the EEC in the case of transport projects of interest to the Community.
