HS2: Unions call for emergency summit on rail line’s future
BBC Business says Unions have called for ministers to hold an emergency summit about the HS2 rail project following growing speculation about its future.
The Trades Union Congress and five member unions said stakeholders must be brought together “urgently” to get the line “back on track”.
Rising costs have led to speculation that the Birmingham to Manchester leg of the high-speed line will be axed.
On Thursday, Rishi Sunak refused to say whether HS2 will run to the North West.
