    Le débat à la Chambre des Lords la semaine dernière et les nombreuses interventions, notamment de l’UIRR, d’EWS et d’Unilog, n’ont pas encore fait avancer d’un iota le dossier du passage des trains de marchandises par le tunnel sous la Manche, toujours fortement réduit et ce depuis plus d’un mois.
