To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, when he plans to respond to Transport for London's Strategic Outline Business Case for Crossrail 2.
21 March 2017
We have only recently received the Strategic Outline Business Case from Transport for London. Any project requires full and detailed scrutiny of its business case. Given the scale and cost of this project, it is right that Government spends sufficient time reviewing all the evidence to be able to make an informed decision.
It would not be appropriate to make any judgments before the business case has been fully considered.
