‘The Christmas present from hell’

with one comment

BBC television’s the One Show (17 December 2013) reported on the volume of documents produced for HS2’s London — West Midlands Hybrid Bill, and the unreasonably short timescale allowed for responses.

HS2 Ltd stated that parish council libraries along the route have been provided with a searchable electronic version of the documents (presumably on a USB stick). However, community libraries tend to have very restricted opening hours, and presumably, only one person at a time would have access. The government and HS2 Ltd should have provided document USB sticks free of charge to the public, and allowed an adequate time period to formulate responses.

  1. The whole HS2 project is anti democratic based on lies. A 50,000 word sham consultation will never change my mind on that. I certainly will not vote for any party that supports it.
