Two former Chancellors link Network Rail cuts to HS2 spending

Besides holding the post of Chancellor, Darling had previously been Secretary of State for Transport, and as such he warned back then that if so much money went on HS2, there wouldn’t be the money for the rest of the rail network.
These words from almost two years ago now seem extremely prophetic, given the recent ‘pausing’ of Network Rail projects.
