Pursuant to Question 249174, the Department for Transport does not hold non-disclosure agreements with any individuals working on High Speed 2.

However, Confidentiality Agreements are used to protect both HS2 Ltd’s information and the information of the other signatory party and are in accordance with typical business practice. Confidentiality Agreements help to avoid placing homes and businesses in unnecessary blight and protect commercially sensitive information and the personal information of those potentially affected by any proposed changes. According to HS2 Ltd’s Confidentiality Register, there are 320 Confidentiality Agreements.
