Following the General Election on May 7th the HS2 Select Committee will be reappointed. It is likely to retain some members but at least two will change, including a replacement for the LibDem MP who lost their seat. Its first post-election meeting is on June 8th.
The Select Committee visit to the Buckinghamshire section of the HS2 route was scheduled for May but has now been postponed. The new date is not yet known but is likely to be some time during the summer. The official hearing for the Buckinghamshire part of HS2 may take place in July and will be a chance to put the case for a long tunnel under the whole Chilterns AONB.
