Following the Higgins report in March this year, I asked HS2 Ltd and Network Rail to develop more comprehensive proposals for the redevelopment of Euston, working with the rail industry and the local community. If a proposal can be developed that improves on that contained in the hybrid Bill, I will bring it forward as an amendment to the Bill in due course. A consultation on any supplementary environmental information accompanying the proposal would follow in accordance with the Standing Orders of this House.
