The economic impact of HS2 on the economy of Wales

James Crowley made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

On the 11th of February the Prime Minister stated that Wales would benefit from HS2 due to the Crewe link (Source: https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/20...).

On what basis does the government believe the Welsh economy will benefit from HS2? In answering this question, could you provide the most recent economic modelling/business case/economic case for HS2 regarding benefits and loses to Wales as a result of the project. In addition to this, could you also release the DfT's most recent forecasts, and the models underlying them, involving the benefits and loses to the Welsh economy as a result of HS2.

Yours faithfully,
James Crowley
