Current Funding Envelope

Joe Rukin made this Freedom of Information request to High Speed Two (HS2) Limited

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

I note a recent written parliamentary answer (HL 1048) received by Lord Berkley on 27th July, which states the 'long term funding envelope' for Phase 1 of HS2 is £27.18bn. Lord Berkley points to the fact that the last time he asked the same question (HL 4189), which was answered on 21st December 2016, this figure was £24.3bn. The £24.3bn figure is consistent with the answer you gave to my previous FOIA request FOI-1444, which you fully replied to on 24th December 2015.

As such, I would like to know the breakdowns, with and without contingency, for the long term funding envelope of:

Phase 1
Phase 2 (whether that be Phase 2 overall, or Phase 2a & 2b separately)
Rolling Stock

This is effectively a request for an update to the information you provided on 24th December 2015, so I do not anticipate any delay in providing it.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Rukin
