A major Bill to legislate for the building of the controversial High Speed 2 rail link has been formally presented to Parliament.
The High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill was given its formal first reading by MPs in a very brief appearance where a Commons clerk read out the title of the Bill.
Bills are not debated at first reading. A key debate and vote on the principle of the legislation will be held in the coming months.
