BCC comments on HS2 speculation

Responding to reports on the unpublished Oakervee Review, seen today in the Financial Times, BCC Director General Dr Adam Marshall said:

“Our business communities want to see HS2 delivered in full without further delay.

“This project is an investment that will transform the capacity of our railways and the potential of so many areas across the UK. While there can be no blank cheque, cutting the project back would put development and investment plans across the country at risk.”
