On Thursday, the National Audit office issued a report on HS2, saying
“In an early examination of progress by the Department for Transport in planning for the High Speed 2 rail network, the National Audit Office has expressed reservations about the Department’s business case. In particular, in presenting its case for investment in the project, the Department is said to have poorly articulated the strategic need for a transformation in rail capacity and how High Speed 2 will help generate regional economic growth.”
On Newsnight, David Grossman reveals the flaws in HS2 that led to the National Audit Office casting doubts on the scheme. The piece was followed by an interview with Rail Minister, Simon Burns.
