High Speed 2 Railway Line

Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for

Transport with reference to his Department’s Estimate

of Expense of High Speed Rail (London to West

Midlands) dated 15 November 2013, if he will update

that document to adjust the figures to December 2013

prices. [178665]

Mr Goodwill: The Estimate of Expense is presented

in 2011 prices. This price base has been used in presenting

all cost information on the project to date to enable a

clear comparison of cost as the project progresses. I do

not therefore intend to update the Estimate of Expense

to adjust the figures to December 2013 prices.
