HS2 debateThe Supreme Court has this morning unanimously dismissed the appeals against the lawfulness of the HS2 consultation scheme.

Responding to the ruling Transport Minister Baroness Kramer said: We welcome that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the appeal, which addressed technical issues that had no bearing on the need for a new north-south railway.

The governments handling of the project has been fully vindicated by the highest court in the land. We will now continue to press ahead with the delivery of HS2.

The news comes just days after a parliamentary debate on the environmental impact of HS2 had been delayed because of omitted pages from the public consultation document.
