Conservative-Lib Dem deal includes HS2

I’ve had a quick glance through of the deal between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats available from the BBC and other places:

It has this to say on the enviroment:

The parties agree to implement a full programme of measures to fulfil our joint ambitions for a low carbon and eco-friendly economy, including:

The establishment of a high-speed rail network.
