Society fuming over minister’s HS2 comments

THE Chiltern Society has hit out at HS2 comments made by Transport Minister Philip Hammond.

The group was ‘disappointed’ with Mr Hammond’s statement in the House of Commons on December 20.

The Society said: “Mr Hammond claims ‘solutions have now been found which can significantly mitigate the impacts of the railway at local level’.

“We reject any suggestion that the amendments proposed for the cross-Chilterns section of the route would be anywhere near sufficient enough mitigation.”
