Stop HS2 goes to House of Commons for debate

Stop HS2 supporters will be at Westminster today, during the HS2 debate in the House of Commons.

Campaigners are expected to arrive there from 10.30. It is likely that there will be a few Stop HS2 supporters there until about 6pm.

The Bucks Advertiser will be showing the debate live on here. They also suggest using the twitter hashtag #hs2debate.

Many of the campaigners will be in the chamber for the debate itself: we are unable to say exactly when this will be, as it is one of the last items of business. The day’s timetable is on the House of Commons website – here.

  1. While travelling to witness the debate live,yesterday, on the improved Chiltern service (49minutes,Bicester-London with one stop) I saw people reading, relaxing and working on laptops, able to spread out with plenty of tables and the train about half full, mid morning, a pleasant environment.
    But on a different service,at the peak times, with every seat full and with many standing,it would have quite different.
    First Great Western were forced to compromise their formerly spacious mk 111 coaches in order to cram in extra seats for peak time travellers, losing almost all of the bays with tables, in the face of desperate overcrowding and passenger agitation.
    In those circumstances, nobody could work easily nor do anything other than endure.
    One way or another, with ever increasing demand, we need extra capacity, both in the short term and for the future- by whatever means.
