HS2 in Hansard 01/04/2014

High Speed 2 Railway Line

Andrea Leadsom: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport if he will update the business case for High
Speed 2 to reflect the fact that there will be no link with
High Speed 1. [194270]

Mr Goodwill: We will continue to revise and update
the economic case for HS2 as new project milestones
are reached, such as decisions on the preferred route for
Phase 2, to ensure it is based on the best available
evidence and latest understanding of the project, including
taking account of the decision to remove the existing
proposals for the HS1-HS2 link from the scheme.
