Department for Transport written question – answered on 14th December 2022.
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment his department has made of the impact of inflation on the cost of HS2; and whether his Department plans to update the financial modelling.
Along with the rest of the construction sector and wider economy, HS2 is experiencing higher levels of inflation. This is creating pressures against HS2’s existing annual funding settlements, which we are working through following the Autumn Statement. The most recent position on HS2 was reported in the six monthly update to Parliament in October.
