To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the (1) adequacy, and (2) timeliness of the compensation received by property owners affected by the HS2 project.

The Government recognises the impact building a project on the scale of HS2 has on people and businesses along the route. It is determined to ensure they are properly compensated in a timely manner and treated with compassion, dignity and respect.

That is why the Government introduced an exceptional package of property compensation schemes across the whole route that are generous and comprehensive, and go beyond what is required by law. The schemes will remain in place until one year after HS2 is operational.
