HS2 Action Alliance wrote to the Secretary of State for Transport, my right hon. Friend Mr McLoughlin, on his appointment setting out their concerns about HS2. I recently wrote to the group clarifying the Government's position on some of those concerns though on the group's specific request for a meeting, due to other pressures, it is not possible to meet at the current time. However the Department will continue to engage with the group and provide the information the group is seeking wherever possible.
