Decisions regarding capacity and pricing are commercial ones for Eurotunnel as a private operator, noting that there are a number of options available to customers wishing to travel from the UK to Europe via the short Straits in what is a highly competitive market. Nevertheless, my officials will continue to engage with Eurotunnel and raise this important issue.
