Question

Further to Question No: 2017/1816

Do you agree that there are many reasons why Old Oak Common should be designated as a temporary terminus for HS2 but high among them are that by delaying High Speed Rail services into Euston until Crossrail 2 services commence this also offers the dual benefits of (a) allowing agencies to work together to integrate the different construction schemes to help mitigate some of the disruption and; (b) helping to significantly reduce crowding particularly on the already overstretched Northern and Victoria line services during peak periods, which will make transiting through Euston that much easier for passengers. Will you make further representations to the Secretary of State for Transport to ensure the Government hears this message loud and clear?

Your response being:

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Will you now give a substantive reply?
