Transport Secretary Maria Eagle spoke to ITV Daybreak about the next phase of the HS2 High Speed Rail route, which has just been unveiled.
HS2 was initially introduced by Labour, and Maria Eagle promised that if they were voted in next time, Labour would continue with these plans.
She added that the current Government however, was not moving fast enough: "So far all we've seen from this Government is a botched consultation on the first part to Birmingham, which they may have to re-run."
