MP Rob Butler said on this Twitter account that he was very disappointed with the response he received from the Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps
I’ve had many emails from constituents asking why #HS2 is going ahead when coronavirus is costing the country billions of pounds and the way we work has changed dramatically. Today I put those points directly to the Transport Secretary
@grantshapps . Sadly to no avail… He says it will still be relevant in the decades ahead, that over time more people will want to travel again and that the construction of HS2 is a sign of our confidence about our country’s future. Disappointing, but I’ll always stand up for local people impacted by this project.
