Examination of Witnesses (Questions 80-81)|
WEDNESDAY 10 JULY 2002
HE M DANIEL
M DENIS DOUTÉ
80. So do you want to end this business? Would
you prefer not to have trains with freight going through the tunnel
at all now?
(M Douté) No, of course not. Although this
has been extremely difficult and very hard on the morale of the
people working there, they are very willing to develop the traffic
and we are as much as they are, so we are all working very hard
to try to end all this trouble and be back on normal traffic.
81. So you think there really is a commitment
by yourselves and by the French Government to the trans-European
(M Douté) Indeed. If I was spending as much
time on any other traffic I would work at least 150 hours per
Chairman: You would probably, M Douté,
be a lot richer than you are now. Your Excellency and M Douté,
you have been very indulgent and we are very grateful to you both
for attending today. Thank you very much indeed.
