Lord Berkeley talks to Sky News’ Sophie Ridge about his report into HS2:
Parliament was misled into supporting HS2 says Lord Berkeley, appointed by the government as Deputy Chair of official report reviewing the project. The former Chair of Railfreight was so dissolusioned with the official report into HS2 that he’s produced his own, and says taxpayers are set to lose £40bn.
House of Lords, 24th July 2019. Tony Berkeley claims that parliament has been misled for at least three years and that the £86bn cost estimate for HS2 has been known for at least three years. Baroness Vere seems to claim that gagging former employees is standard practice at HS2 Ltd.
