Responding to today’s Telegraph story carrying Transport Secretary Chris Grayling’s admission that the second phase (Birmingham to Leeds) of HS2 may never be built, Liberal Democrat Transport spokesperson Baroness Randerson said:

“This is another line chalked up on Grayling’s CV of failure.

“If HS2 turns out to be just a way of making Birmingham a suburb of London because it can be reached in 30 minutes, it will have fundamentally distorted the purpose of the project.

“This Conservative Government are dragging prosperity from the north rather than increasing it and the Liberal Democrats demand better.”
