Cost inclusions within the HS2 budget.

We're waiting for Graham Heasman to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department for Transport,
Following Ms. Nasrat Ghani's reply in the House of Commons regarding legal costs incurred within HS2Ltd or the DfT over the last 5 years, she answered that... 'The HS2 budget is £55.7 billion and legal costs are included therein'.
As the Department continues to insist that the budget for HS2 is £55.7 billion I would like to know if, as it is part of the proposed route HS2b route, has the cost of the completion of the 'loop' from Sheffield back onto the main HS2 line to Leeds, along with the cost of a parkway station also been included within the total £55.7 billion? If they are not, then can the Department tell me which budget will this additional cost be taken from and what is the budget for this 'proposed loop' and the parkway station?

Yours faithfully,
Graham Heasman
