Alison Munro, CEO of HS2 Ltd refuses to bet for charity that HS2 will come in on budget:
Proof that HS2 Ltd are happy to gamble with our money but not their own! Julia Hartley-Brewer interviews Alison Munro, Chief Executive of HS2 Ltd, on LBC Radio 24th July 2013.
Meanwhile, Nigel Wilson, the chief executive of Legal and General, told the Sunday Telegraph that they want to invest £15 billion in UK infrastructure – but thinks HS2 is not a good use of their money.
“If there’s capital available, you’d be thinking of spending it on building more homes rather than spending £43bn on rail when there’s a desperate shortage of housing.
“If we want to develop the regions then let’s develop regional plans. Just building a slightly improved rail service won’t necessarily do that.”
