A spokesman for the anti-HS2 group that was successful in its High Court case over the compensation consultation suggested that the Government should issue property bonds:
The Department for Transport today said that a previous pledge to provide "generous" HS2 compensation still stands.
A DfT spokesman said: "The Government's commitment to being generous has not changed. We want to provide generous compensation."
A lawyer from the firm who represented High Speed 2 Action Alliance (HS2AA) - who won a case against the government today - expressed delight over the victory on the compensation challenge.
Government consultations on compensating those affected by the proposed HS2 high-speed rail scheme were today ruled "unlawful" by the High Court, lawyers Leigh Day said.
The High Court is to rule today on legal challenges to the Government's HS2 high-speed rail scheme.
Opponents are asking a judge in London to declare in a series of five cases that the multi-billion pound project is legally flawed and must be sent back for reconsideration.
The first phase of HS2 would see a high-speed railway line running through Tory heartlands from London to Birmingham.
The scheme has polarised opinion, with many residents' groups and local councils bitterly opposing it, but supporters point out the benefits of a reduction in journey times between the UK's two biggest cities.
If successful, the legal challenge could potentially delay the scheme for years.
