Nicola Shaw: I am not sure what mistakes you mean, so I will talk more generally about the positive transfer of lessons. Are we transferring lessons learned—the good things and the perhaps not so good things? Yes. I would be very happy for you to see the line and go on a tour: we have done similar things with a number of MPs already, some of whom are here, and with members of the High Speed 2 planning and design teams. There is a lot of talking to people who were at High Speed 1 during the construction, who either continue to work there or work for other organisations. We are trying to ensure that that embedded knowledge is transferred to the people working on the other side.
