Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

Over recent months various ministers and HS2 Ltd employees have claimed that HS2 is 'supporting 7000 jobs'

Could you please explain exactly what this means?

What crtiteria do you use to determine whether or not a job is being 'supported' by HS2?

How was the number '7000' determined? Please show your working.

Yours faithfully,

Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of High Speed Two (HS2) Limited's handling of my FOI request '7000 supported jobs'.

In my original request i specifically request that you "Please show your working". However, in terms of supply chain jobs in your response, you have stated "As of 31 January 2019, the information submitted by suppliers equated to 6034 full time employees (or their equivalents) employed in our supply chain."

You have not showed your working. How have you determined FTE? Is it purely on hours? If so, how many hours do you consider FTE to be? Did this data just relate to January? Etc, etc, etc.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/7...

Yours faithfully,

Joe Rukin
