Residents may also be interested in this report from The Sunday Telegraph, 13th October, which includes some references to Dr Paul Thornton, of Cromwell Lane...
"The government-owned firm behind HS2 is to release a series of documents it previously admitted could lead to ministers scrapping the planned rail line if they were made public, The Sunday Telegraph can disclose. HS2 Ltd said it will hand over papers detailing discussions with Theresa May's Government over the scheme's planned completion dates, following a two-and-a-half year legal battle by a GP who fears a "cover-up" took place to mask delays.
... Dr Paul Thornton, a GP who is campaigning against HS2, has been attempting to obtain the documents since April 2017. He said what was known as far back as 2016 about delays should "clearly should be in the public domain."... Dr Thornton wanted the papers to be released immediately to ensure an official review into the scheme is "fully informed" before it reports to Mr Johnson.
... the firm is understood to have said: "Detractors of the HS2 programme may use such information to renew their criticism of the HS2 programme, which could result in cancellation of the HS2 programme by the government."
