To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the position and dates of employment by HS2 Ltd are of all former High Speed 2 staff who have received redundancy payments.
30 October 2017
HS2 Ltd does not intend to publish details of the individuals that received the payments because they would have a reasonable expectation that their information would remain confidential. Disclosure of this information would be in breach of the first principle of the Data Protection Act 1998. The company accepts that the failure to obtain approval to make the payments was the responsibility of HS2 Ltd not the individuals who received them.
