    The only comment I can make about HS2 is that I find it completely crazy to be contemplating an expenditure of at least £50 billion to marginally reduce travelling times by train when the countryside through which the train route will run will be under severe threat of flooding.
    Surely, a better use of the money would be to invest it in coast and inland flood prevention schemes, which will secure a greater amount of value and the homes of countless people?
