Dear Department for Transport,
In your response to a recent petition, https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions... your reply states that "the Government has carefully considered the merits and disadvantages of proceeding with HS2 and has firmly concluded that it should go ahead".

I would like to know what the Government considers the disadvantages of proceeding to be?

Yours faithfully
Samantha Colclough
