Department for Transport statement on HS2 High Court appeal

Ahead of tomorrow's High Court appeal by the HS2 Action Alliance, the Department for Transport issued the following statement.

"The High Court was firm in dismissing these challenges and the Government will continue to defend any challenge in the Court of Appeal. It is unfortunate but inevitable that opponents of HS2 will do what ever they can to delay the Government's plans, but the Government remains committed to delivering HS2 as quickly as possible."
