Petitioning arrangements for the HS2 Hybrid Bill

I am conscious that some of my constituents may want to present petitions against the HS2 Hybrid Bill. Only those who are “directly and specially affected” can petition. I think that almost certainly means only those who have property which is likely to be directly affected by HS2.

Baldry comments on HS2 ahead of Second Reading

There is therefore no way in which the Hybrid Bill can be defeated in the House of Commons and I don’t personally think it is necessarily good tactics for HS2 opponents to try to make this particular vote a test of strength, when it is clear that the Bill will get overwhelming support in the Division Lobbies.

Baldry raises compensation question during HS2 statement

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): My right hon. Friend will clearly come to the House in due course with a statement on compensation. Will he give an undertaking that during the proceedings on the hybrid Bill he and ministerial colleagues in the Treasury will be willing to listen to suggestions on how the compensation scheme can be further refined, improved and targeted?

Sir Tony speaks out about HS2 during debate on the Queen’s Speech

Sir Tony Baldry (Banbury) (Con): I may have got this wrong, but it is my understanding that the Government are introducing two Bills—a paving Bill and a traditional hybrid Bill. Is that my right hon. Friend’s understanding? We will all have to look very closely at the small print of the paving Bill because within it, I think, will be the statutory authority to provide compensation for our constituents who may be affected. So without the paving Bill, our constituents, who may be affected by HS2 for a number of years, will not be able to receive compensation.
