To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton (HL3110), what discussions they have had with HS2 Ltd about halting the installation of ground anchors from Parkway to the DB Cargo Shed area until a comprehensive and independent risk analysis has been completed and published; and whether or not these works are considered to be required regardless of design changes that may arise from the Oakervee Review.

In response to the Oakervee Review, the Department has commissioned a study looking into the efficiency of the future Euston station, including the station approaches. The outcomes of this study will inform the development of the designs of the HS2 Euston station and approaches. Implementation of the selected designs, including the installation of any ground anchors required in the Parkway to the DG Cargo Shed area, will be subject to full risk analysis as they are progressed.
