HS2 Latest

The Government’ High Speed 2 Bill today received Royal Assent.  The Government is now authorised to start construction on High Speed 2.

This is, of course, extremely disappointing to residents who have fought so hard against the project.

I am committed to ensuring that, once construction does begin, the very highest standards of construction practice are adhered to and that disruption is – as far as possible – kept to a minimum.

I have today received correspondence from the Secretary of State for Transport setting out details for the Homeowner Payment Scheme which might be of interest to some constituents.  If I can assist any constituents with their claims, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
