Labour conference: delegates on HS2 high speed rail bid

The HS2 rail plan was Labour's idea while it was in power, but this week the shadow chancellor appeared to question the cost of the project, and said there would be "no blank cheque".

Adam Fleming asked delegates, including past and present MPs, for their votes in the Daily Politics mood box, an unscientific test with plastic balls.

The proposed high speed rail line would link northern and southern England with 225mph trains running between London and the West Midlands by 2026. A second phase would see branches to Leeds and Manchester by 2033.
