asked the Prime Minister whether she will make a statement on her discussions with Pierre Mauroy, the French Prime Minister, during the weekend of 15–16 May; and whether she raised the matter of Her Majesty's Government's policy on the Channel tunnel.
I met the French Prime Minister for the first time on 15 May. We had a full and useful discussion, mainly about European Community affairs. We also touched on the South Atlantic. On the question of the Channel fixed link, we agreed that studies should continue.
