Andrew Dismore AM: Thank you, Chairman. My question is to the Mayor. I wanted to ask you about
High Speed 2 (HS2), Mr Mayor. Firstly, could I commend to you - and, indeed, everybody else - the article by Simon Jenkins in yesterday’s The Guardian that sets out the sorry history of the HS2 scheme?
I believe you recently met HS2 Chairman Sir David Higgins. You previously said you would ensure the company “does the right thing by Camden”, presumably including your proposal that the line terminates initially at
Old Oak Common. What was Mr Higgins’ response?
