[Homework]【整理】2013-09-14 英议会公共账目委员会反对高铁建设

Its promise is to slash journey time between our major cities. But plans for HS2 are going too fast for parliament spending watchdog which is to yet be convinced it's worth the fifteen-billion-pound cost. We think that has been over optimistic on time, over optimistic on the benefits. And they haven't got a fund on the real costs of this. And if you really want to spend 15 billion pounds which we all do on the infrastructure investment, there are better ways of spending it, sooner, getting better benefit in the provincial cities.In 2017, constructions due to start on HS2's first phase, linking London with Birmingham if parliament approves. The estimated cost has gone up from 60 to 21 billion pounds, but MPs in the public accounts committee are worried that the estimated return of that investment has gone down because of an error with how it was calculated. And they want a fresh analysis carried out before giving the go ahead to phase 2.
The trouble with all of reports is that by the time they surveys, they can't be out of date. But look, I'm determining that the points that made by the National Audit Office, the points that made by the major projects of authority are points we dress with the department and we use those points to get it right.
As time moves on, it feels like HS2 with willing more enemies than friends. Former champions have turned skeptical, the institute of the directors has called it a ground folly. The debate has followed the prime minister all the way from here in Buckinghamshire to the G20 in Russia where he's pledged to fight back against the unholy allies opposing it.
Seem strange in this austere time to hear the government fighting so hard to spend money. This week expected to make the case for HS2 even stronger.
