HS2 Bill moves forward in House of Lords

THE Bill authorising the second phase of HS2 from Birmingham to Crewe has made progress in the House of Lords, when it passed Second Reading. There will be no further advances for the next five weeks, because Parliament is now prorogued until 14 October, when the debate in the Lords will continue, followed by the Committee Stage.
