  • Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line 12 Apr 2016

    To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will assess the alternative Colne Valley tunnelling scheme for High Speed 2 as proposed by Hillingdon Council; and if he will meet the hon.

  • Housing and Planning Bill — [2nd Allocated Day]: Clause 67 — Payments to Secretary of State 12 Jan 2016
