Government trying to retake HS2 initiative.

With the see-sawing of opinion over the last few months it has been difficult to understand where we will end up with HS2.  There has been plenty of plenty of news in all forms of media without the HVRA also trying to keep residents  informed.

However, clearly those against have gradually been building momentum with some large organisations and well known individuals openly speaking out against the project.  This has obviously rattled the Government who yesterday issued “The Strategic Case for HS2” and invited journalists to attend a briefing at the Department of Transport.

Just to make sure that journalists were armed with the right questions to ask the Transport Minister at the briefing, this leaflet was handed out to all attendees by the HS2 Action Alliance.  It makes interesting reading and assuming you are against HS2 is something you can use to further your argument.
