Today HS2 will officially be discussed in three places in the Houses of Parliament, although they are unlikely to be at the same time, and there is another debate due tomorrow in the House of Lords.
This afternoon, there is a Motion relating to the High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill to be discussed in the main chamber of the House of Commons. This is to discuss the changes that were announced last week (although the full information needed has not yet been published). More information can be found in the research briefing on the Parliament website.
The second discussion is the Notice of date of examination of Additional Provision 2 in the House of Lords.
Finally today, the HS2 Hybrid Bill committee are doing their normal petitioning session.
Tomorrow, there is a debate in the House of Lords main chamber prompted by the Lords Economic Affairs Committee investigation on the economic case for HS2.
Meanwhile one of the last appointments to the shadow cabinet made by Jeremy Corbyn was the new shadow Transport secretary, Lilian Greenwood. This has led to suggestions that she wasn’t his first choice.
