They add that what they ask the Prime Minister to do is simply to state whether he is of opinion that the construction of a submarine tunnel would endanger the national security, in which case the persons who have subscribed the cost of the experiments would be advised to suspend operations on the responsibily of her Majesty's Government. Or if, on the other hand, he is of opinion that such a tunnel would not endanger the national security, then that the experimental works should be allowed to proceed under such reasonable regulations as the Board of Trade may lay down— always bearing in mind that these experimental works have been conducted under Parliamentary sanction, and have been, and will be, carried out .without any charge to the State."
