Petitions to the
House of Lords Select Committee

(See this page for the 1st round of petitions - July -September 2015)

The Lords select committee

Their Lordships decided at the outset that they would not make any recommendation which would require an additional provision. Consequently, most petitioners scaled down their presentations, regarding the whole thing as a 'tidying up' exercise. Their Lordships, the lawyers and the HS2 suits were presumably still sufficiently remunerated for their efforts, despite this failure to perform the scrutiny which HS2 still requires.

The petitioners paid their own way, as usual.


HS2 Ltd issued 414 locus standi challenges (allegedly on these grounds) - listed here. The outcome of the challenges is recorded in the (full) list of petitioners. Most challenges were upheld, including those against all MPs along the route.
