Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport if he will list the case officers allocated by
HS2 Ltd to assist residents affected by High Speed 2.
[199605]
Mr Goodwill: HS2 Ltd does not currently allocate
case officers to residents affected by HS2 but refers their
concerns to the appropriate specialist. As stated in their
leaflet “HS2 Residents’ Charter”, HS2 Ltd will offer a
single named case officer when the charter is developed.
The leaflet can be viewed on the HS2 Ltd website or is
available via HS2 Public Enquiries.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport if he will list the HS2 Ltd property
specialists who are available for private meetings with
residents who are affected by High Speed 2. [199606]
Mr Goodwill: The names of the property specialists
for anyone seeking advice on compensation are published
in the factsheet ″Your Guide to the HS2 Express Purchase
Scheme″. The factsheet can be viewed on the HS2 Ltd
website or is available via HS2 Public Enquiries.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport if he will list the properties that have been
purchased to date by HS2 Ltd; what the total purchase
price was in each case; whether they have been rented
out or rented back to the former owners; and what the
rent being paid is. [199607]
Mr Goodwill: The information requested has been
placed in the Libraries of the House. Rental information
has been summarised in order to protect the privacy of
tenants.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport when the public consultation will begin on
the home owner payment for properties in rural areas
120 to 300 metres from High Speed 2. [199608]
Mr Goodwill: As set out in the Decision Document:
Property Compensation Consultation 2013 for the
London-West Midlands HS2 route, the Government
will consult on the Homeowner Payment over the summer.
We will communicate the start date as soon as it is
decided.
Mrs Gillan: To ask the Secretary of State for
Transport if he will list all personnel employed by HS2
Ltd by grade, their salary scale and their immediate
previous employer. [199609]
Mr Goodwill: Information relating to personnel employed
by HS2 Ltd, their grades and salary scales is shown in
the following table. We are withholding information
relating to previous employers as this is personal information
and releasing it would contravene the first principle of
the Data Protection Act 1998. Grade 23 and above have
no range and individuals are effectively employed on a
“spot-rate”. The individuals and their salaries are however
already published in HS2 Ltd accounts.
