In a statement to Red Kite Radio today, local MP Greg Smith (@gregsmith_uk) said “It is a disgraceful act to take this land away from Buckinghamshire” @bbowt ; @hs2
This after HS2 Ltd had formally taken possession of Calvert Jubilee this morning with no warning to the Berkshire Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust who have spent years improving the land for wildlife.
He said that he had been challenging the minister and HS2 Ltd to say why they needed this particular piece of land.
He has promised to keep up the fight against HS2 in every shape and form he can.
