To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to Conclusion 59 of the Oakervee Review of HS2, published on 11 February, whether the Department for Transport will update and publish a revised business case for the whole HS2 project, including the latest costs and benefits for the project, before a Notice to Proceed on Phase 1 is issued.
The Government has committed to publish the Full Business Case for HS2 Phase One, to set out the evidence underpinning this element of the scheme. The Government will provide an update in due course.
HS2 is a crucial investment, not just in our transport network but in the wider UK economy. It will provide thousands of extra seats, help level up our country and play a key role in helping government reach its 2050 carbon net zero objective.
