For immediate release
Responding to the estimated overrun of HS2’s Euston station, Joe Ventre, digital campaign manager of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“HS2 has moved from one farce to another.
“The inability to deliver Euston within budget doesn’t bode well for the rest of the project.
“Ministers should do taxpayers a favour and scrap this white elephant once and for all.”
