Sarah Hayward: It would depend on what it was and if it was an improvement. We would need to see the detail of a scheme. We do not object out of hand to things. As I said when comparing this scheme to the High Speed 1 scheme, we think a tunnel could be better and a vastly improved solution to using the North London line link, but High Speed 2 need to do the work and the engineering, and we would then have to assess what disruption and what have you it would cause Camden Town. I cannot object to or support a scheme I do not know the detail of, but we do think a tunnel would be better than the current proposal.
