Campaign group Stop HS2 has argued that the Government's figures on HS2, which say the train will provide a £15 billion boost to the economy, are flawed.
Stop HS2 Campaign Manager, Joe Rukin said:
“It seems the big ‘relaunch’ of HS2 consists of rehashing the discredited argument that no-one works on trains.
Charles Dickens was proving that wrong 150 years ago, and unlike todays commuters he didn’t have a laptop."
