Last week we reported that Stop HS2 are one of just 24 petitioners (out of nearly 2000) against the HS2 Hybrid Bill who are having our locus standi, i.e. our right to be heard, being challenged by HS2 Ltd. Our hearing is on 9th July.
HS2 Ltd claim we do not represent anyone affected by HS2, so we should not be allowed to petition the committee of MPs who are looking closely at the HS2 Hybrid Bill.
As part of our evidence to the MPs, we would very much like letters from individuals, action groups, parish councils and any other body saying that they believe Stop HS2 does represent them.
Please send your letters either by post to Joe Rukin, Stop HS2 2 Caesar Road, Kenilworth, CV8 1DL or as an attachment to email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need to have received everything by Thursday 3rd July as all evidence has to be submitted in advance of the hearing.
If you’d like to appear as a witness on the day, please get in touch!
Things you might want to put in your letter:
- Your petition number, if you have one, or that of any group you are connected with.
- Help we have provided to you, such as information about petitioning and various other consultations.
- The fact that Stop HS2 represents you, and people like you.
- That by having national organisations petition, route wide issues, such as sound can be properly addressed.
