Transport Select Committee to publish high speed rail report on 8 November

The Transport Committee has agreed to publish its Tenth Report of Session 2010–12, High Speed Rail (HC 1185-I), at 00.01 am on Tuesday 8 November.  The press will be receiving embargoed copies at 8:00am on 7 November, so you can expect to be able to read about it in your morning papers on Tuesday.

The committee’s role is to investigate the strategic case for the high speed rail link.  They  are not examining the detail of the route or how it would affect individual businesses and residents.  If it is recommended to go ahead, the specific route will be dealt with by a hybrid bill committee.  For details of the terms of reference of the committee please follow this link Transport Select Committee
