The House of Lords starts work on HS2

Here’s a note from Brian Adams, Committee member and one of our leading HS2 petitioners, about the second reading of the High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) bill on April 14th:

“It is good to see that some Lords understand the disenchantment of the communities and many of the issues.”

“Note the comment that they should start first with petitions from London and AFTER the summer recess.”
