To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what studies his Department has commissioned into the effect on the Scottish economy of a fast link from the channel tunnel to London.

My Department has not commissioned any such studies. However, a study on the impact of the channel tunnel on the Scottish economy was commissioned by the Scottish Development Agency from Planning, Industrial and Economic Development Advisers and was completed in 1988.
