London First comments on HS2September 11, 2013
Commenting on the speech by the Transport secretary today and new analysis from KPMG on economic benefits of HS2, Baroness Jo Valentine said:
“HS2 will boost capacity on our railways and tie the great cities of Britain closer together.
“KPMG’s analysis shows clearly that faster and better rail connections will benefit the whole of the UK, not just London and the south.
“The Government should stick to its course and bear down on the project’s costs to ensure taxpayers get good value for money.”
