To ask Her Majesty's Government when they intend to publish the report of the consultation required under section 60 of the High Speed Rail (West Midlands–Crewe) Act 2021; and why they did not publish that report before 1 May 2021.

The Government published the report on 13 May, as soon as possible after the Queen’s speech. There were a range of factors that unfortunately delayed publication of the report. This included receiving 499 responses which was much more than expected so the report took longer to produce, commencement of the pre-local election period, and prorogation of Parliament.
