Responding to the Government's announcement of a review of HS2, Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of the NP11 Board and the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, said:

“The additional capacity and faster journey times offered by HS2, integrated with Northern Powerhouse Rail and the existing network, are fundamental to the North’s ambitions to deliver extraordinary inclusive growth that will benefit all in society.
