To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 18 June (HL453), whether any cost-benefit analysis has been conducted purely on the impact on the economic performance of South Yorkshire of siting the HS2 station at Sheffield City Centre and Meadowhall, rather than on a demand and appraisal basis; and if such analysis has been conducted, when the results will be published.

The conclusions of this assessment were set out by HS2 Ltd in their report Options for phase two of the high speed rail network (March 2012).
