asked Her Majesty's Government:What decision has been reached about the future of the Grade One listed St. Pancras station.

The future of the station was considered earlier in the year by the Select Committee on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link Bill and was then extensively debated during the Committee and Third Reading stages of the Bill. St. Pancras will be refurbished as the terminus for the CTRL under powers contained in the Bill, and subject to Planning and Heritage Minimum Requirements and the provisions of a Heritage Deed. Ownership of both the trainshed and the adjacent Chambers—also covered by the Grade I listing—has been transferred to London and Continental Railways (LCR), who are responsible for building and operating the new railway. LCR have launched a competition to invite proposals for the future use of the Chambers.
