To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, which (a) universities, (b) research institutes, (c) consultancy firms and (d) individuals have been engaged by (i) his Department and (ii) HS2 Ltd to produce a review or a report on which aspects of High Speed 2; and how much each such report has cost.
16 March 2015
A list of reports and reviews produced by DfT and HS2 limited is attached. We have interpreted the terms “report or review” to relate to any final documents for work commissioned to provide research into various aspects of HS2. By final we mean completed and assured (i.e. not work in progress). We have also focussed our response on recent reports (i.e., reports and reviews completed between Jan 2014 and February 2015).
