The high speed rail bill that never became an act

Last month when HS2 Ltd challenged the right of Stop HS2 to be heard by the HS2 Hybrid Bill Committee, their lawyers provided some documents, minutes of previous locus standi hearings which they thought set the precedent by which Stop HS2 should have been judged.

For reasons best known to HS2 Ltd, they didn’t include minutes from the hearing about a group called ‘Crossfire’, whose case was the most similar one to that of Stop HS2 and who of course won locus standi, but they did include other challenges made regarding the same bill, the Kings Cross Railways Bill.

But the Kings Cross Railways Bill, which has some big similarities to the HS2 Hybrid Bill , never actually became the Kings Cross Railways Act. Here’s a video explaining some of what happened.
