The purpose of the consultation on the Environmental Statement is to inform MPs of the public's views on it, ahead of them voting on whether the High Speed Rail (London—West Midlands) Bill should be read a second time. The independent assessor, appointed by Parliament, will prepare a report summarising the issues raised in the responses to the Environmental Statement consultation, by 7 April. There is therefore no intention to provide a formal Government response. A response to last year's consultation on the draft Environmental Statement was published when the Bill was introduced.
