- HS2 Funding Referendum Bill (23 January 2015) See 5 other results from this debate
Lilian Greenwood: I agree. Nearly all rail projects’ capital costs are publicly funded, although there are sometimes opportunities for private investment. I have no doubt that there will be opportunities to attract such investment in, for example, over-site development of stations in connection with HS2.

Huw Irranca-Davies: On cost-benefit analysis of rail infrastructure and the Wigan spur, does the Minister agree that investment in the Tondu loop to deliver a half-hour instead of an hourly interchange at the Maesteg-Llynfi line would be far better in terms of cost?

- Written Answers — House of Lords: East Coast Railway Line (20 January 2015)
Baroness Kramer: Decisions on the allocation of track capacity on the railway are matters for Network Rail and the Office of Rail Regulation.
