VoxOpp Evidence to Transport Select Committee

by Jeremy on 25-May-2011

VoxOpp submitted its written evidence to the Transport Select Committee inquiry into High Speed Rail shortly before the deadline of 16 May and has since received confirmation that the evidence has been accepted.

On 18 March this year the Transport Committee announced it had decided to undertake an inquiry into the strategic case for High Speed Rail. The Committee said it would focus on the principal arguments for and against High Speed Rail and did not intend to examine the precise specification of the HS2 route nor how the route would affect individual landowners, businesses and residents in the vicinity of the route.

The Transport Committee is charged by the House of Commons with the scrutiny of the Department for Transport and its formal remit is to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of that Department and its associated public bodies.
