Levelling-up Agenda (15 Sep 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...by reports that Ministers are again considering the cancellation of phase 2b, which runs from Leeds and connects to other major cities via the east coast main line. Committing to the eastern leg of HS2, alongside Northern Powerhouse Rail and east coast main line upgrades, are all essential to make HS2 work for the north. It is not just about speed; it is about providing that connectivity...

Environment Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 100 (15 Sep 2021)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...I have a feeling that this amendment presses the argument just a step too far. Perhaps I can provide an answer to my noble friend Lord Hylton’s question. I sat on the committee that looked at the HS2 line to Crewe, and I can say to him that it would be impossible, because of veteran trees along the line, to carry out that development as was proposed. One remembers that this amendment...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Allan Dorans: ...introducing a universal basic income. The hon. Member for Don Valley (Nick Fletcher) asked how retaining the £20 could be paid for. I would say to him that we could get rid of Trident and HS2, neither of which Scotland wants or benefits from. It is disgusting that the six Scottish Conservative MPs are absent from the debate today. That shows a total disregard for the views of their...

Back British Farming Day — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (15 Sep 2021)

Theo Clarke: ...the devastating impact of High Speed 2 on their farms and our rural areas. I want to share one shocking story. I heard last week that two farmers have been so severely affected by dealing with HS2 that they have had their shotguns removed, for their own safety, due to a mental breakdown because of not receiving compensation. To be frank, my constituents have been treated with absolute...

Wales: Rail Infrastructure (15 Sep 2021)

Jacob Young: One key way we are supporting rail infrastructure across the country is through HS2. Does the Minister agree that HS2 will have a truly nationwide benefit in places such as Port Talbot and Teesside if we use UK steel in its construction?

Wales: Net Zero Emissions Target (15 Sep 2021)

Geraint Davies: Will the Secretary of State look at the recommendation of the Welsh Affairs Committee that Wales should get its fair share of HS2 funding, the same as Scotland, so we can invest in a modern infrastructure and meet net zero, in particular with the Swansea Bay metro, more quickly?

Health and Social Care Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Health and social care levy (14 Sep 2021)

Bill Cash: I would like to ask the Minister, as he has such responsibilities across the board, whether he has contemplated the question of public waste in the context of, for example, HS2? If we were to cut that back and to cut back waste generally throughout Government, would that not send an enormously powerful message to the British people that we are not only concentrating on this aspect of public...

HS2 — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Sep 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: ...clean, green and cost-effective way. Indeed, I echo the concerns raised by the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas) and many others about the devastating environmental impact that HS2 is having, with more than 15 hectares already utterly destroyed. I also highlight the concerns raised by the hon. Member for Aylesbury (Rob Butler) about the environmental and economic...

Standards in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2021)

Lord Berkeley: ...and trust—and many other noble Lords have spoken about these, as well. I will give the example of what I believe is a disgraceful standard in public life, as applied by the Government to HS2. I am pleased that my noble friend Lord Adonis is in his place, and I am not going to start criticising whether it is the right project or not; I am talking about its management and the way that...

Transport: Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (9 Sep 2021)

Neale Hanvey: ...points, particularly in remote and rural areas, will meet the scale of the challenge when committed investment is still a twenty-fifth of the £1 billion earmarked from the far from carbon-neutral HS2?

Transport: HS2 and East West Rail: Construction Traffic (9 Sep 2021)

HS2 and East West Rail: Construction Traffic

Transport: Rail Services: Toton (9 Sep 2021)

Andrew Stephenson: It will not surprise Members to learn that the Department will soon publish an integrated rail plan, which will confirm how we intend to take forward the HS2 eastern leg.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line: Biodiversity (9 Sep 2021)

Tim Farron: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what plans he has to ensure that HS2 Phase 2b delivers a net gain in biodiversity; and how that net gain will be quantified.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Railway Line (9 Sep 2021)

Paula Barker: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment his Department has made of the viability of bringing forward phase 2a of HS2 between Birmingham and Manchester; and whether that project is on schedule to be completed on time.
