The Committee published its report, Tunnel vision? Completing the European rail market, on 8 December 2011. It was debated in the House on 14 June 2012.
The Committee undertook to examine the future of the European rail market, using the Channel Tunnel as a case study. It took evidence from a wide range of sources, including the Chief Executive of Eurostar, representatives from Eurotunnel and Deutsche Bahn and Transport Minister Theresa Villiers MP. The Committee concluded that the potential of the Channel Tunnel was yet to be unlocked, and urged the Government and the Commission to work harder to deliver an interoperable, effective European rail network.
