I welcomed the recent announcement by the Secretary of State for Transport that Doug Oakervee would be chairing an independent review into whether and how we proceed with HS2, and that he would be ably supported by Lord Berkeley. This followed the recent backbench debate I held in Westminster Hall on the 10th July 2019, in which my constituents had asked me to press for such a review on their behalf.
On behalf of those constituents, I have provided a formal response to the Oakervee Review, and you can read a copy of my submission to the review here.
The terms of reference for the review are available on the gov.uk website, and I look forward to hearing his conclusions.
Please do get in touch with any comments or questions.
