Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport what the estimated cost of re-running the
consultation compensation is for High Speed 2
following the loss by the Department of the Judicial
Review. [150659]
Mr Simon Burns: We are considering how a future
consultation on compensation should work in light of
this one particular aspect of the judgment. At this stage
it is not possible to say what the cost of re-consultation
will be.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport (1) when the new consultation on High
Speed 2 (HS2) compensation on the Birmingham to
London route will commence; and whether it will be
co-ordinated with the consultation on the newly
announced Y route of HS2; [150660]
(2) if he will list the differences between the
consultation on compensation on the High Speed 2
London to Birmingham route and the new
consultation that the Department will be running
following the adverse Judicial Review judgment against
his Department. [150661]
Mr Simon Burns: We are considering the format,
content and timing of the forthcoming HS2 property
compensation consultation and will provide further
information in due course.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport what proportion of his Department’s total
budget will be taken up by expenditure on High Speed
2 (HS2) and HS2 rolling stock in each year from
2013-14 to 2020-21. [150995]
Mr Simon Burns: The proportion of the Department
for Transport’s total budget taken up by High Speed 2

capital cost estimate for the full network (Phases 1 and
2) is £8.15 billion at 2011 prices, including contingency.
