Most of the HS2 Hybrid Bill Committee have retained their seats, except for Mike Thornton of the LibDems. It is not yet clear who will replace him.
There is no reason to suppose that the timetable for the Hybrid Bill will change: the key factor is the rate at which the committee see petitioners. That means that any Hybrid Bill will not receive assent before the end of next year: the fight against HS2 continues and there is plenty of time to get it cancelled.
In addition, David Cameron has yet to announce who will be in charge at the Department for Transport.
The Chiltern Line 4 car trains can be extended and the platforms extended and the route modernised further to provide more capacity to and from Birmingham for one tenth the cost of HS2 Phase 1.
Carry on the presentation of why this HS2 Phase 1 Route 3 is wrong and its shortcomings.
Carry on explaining where your community, farm, amenity and location has not been treated reasonably and where you consider the curbs on the Hybrid Bill Select Committee are reducing the mitigations you require.
Advise the Parliamentary Ombudsman where you consider there is a need to complain against the procedures HS2 has used.
Create an Aarhus Convention Complaint within 10 pages on the curbs to your access to justice, lack of public participation in the decision making process and the failure to consult on changes between 2011 and 2015 when all options were not open because of SOS Command Papers in 2009 and 2010 before you had knowledge of what you would experience and now know to be part of the HS2 no limitations incremental planning you have experienced please.
