Starmer on HS2: We would build it in full

Labour is committed to the full HS2 proposals and Northern Powerhouse rail, Sir Keir Starmer has said.

After the government announced its Integrated Rail Plan, the Labour leader said the scrapped sections were in his party’s last manifesto and “that is our commitment” going forward.

He spoke about how the “anger on the ground was palpable” in Yorkshire on Thursday after people learned about the scaled-back HS2 scheme.
