HS2 Plans Could be Derailed and then Corbyn Backtracks





Full report here:
HS2 plans could be derailed if Jeremy Corbyn wins Labour leadership


Jeremy Corbyn Backtracks

But this from the Financial Times, September 7th.

"Mr Corbyn voted against HS2 in 2013 but his opposition appears to have evaporated in recent weeks. This summer, he wrote a draft speech opposing the project: but when he delivered it, all references to the line had disappeared.

"Mr Corbyn recently told the Financial Times that it was too late to halt the first section of the route from London to Birmingham — and he would not stop the second leg to Leeds and Manchester. "


Commencement of Work Could be Stalled by Two Years

Other sources are claiming that the project could be stalled by 2 or 3 years:
