holding answer 11 July 2011

No such discussions have taken place. As the Department is currently consulting the public on the principle of High Speed Two (HS2) and is yet to seek powers from Parliament, it would be inappropriate at this stage to conduct discussions, or to receive expressions of interest, of a commercial nature about the construction of stations or the procurement of trains or track for HS2.
