Video from last week's event on #HS2 and our submission to the Transport Select Committee

May 17, 2011 12:04 PM

Last week we held a brilliant event bringing together different groups opposing HS2.  Speakers from the Green Party, the RAC Foundation, the Countryside Alliance, AGAHST - the federation of action groups against HS2, and the TaxPayers' Alliance explained why they thought the project was a bad one.  If you weren't able to make it, the video is below the jump, please share it around:

The Transport Select Committee are running a consultation on the scheme and we have submitted evidence to it.  Our submission contains a lot more detail on many of the arguments made at the event.  With the scheme representing very poor value we will continue to press for it to be abandoned.
