Final report on HS2 to be published on Monday


After months of hearing evidence from concerned petitioners, parliament’s HS2 select committee will deliver its final report on the scheme on Monday.

The committee, which has the power to order significant mitigation measures, completed its hearings earlier this month.

It has provided individuals and bodies directly and specially affected by HS2 with the opportunity to object to specific provisions and to seek its amendment, although not to object to its principle.

The committee heard from the likes of Bucks County Council and MPs David Lidington and John Bercow as well as many individuals whose lives will be impacted b y the controversial scheme.

It is believed the report will be published some time after 5pm.
