Call You and Yours: HS2

Julian Worricker takes your calls on the HS2. Business leaders have called it a 'grand folly', but what do you think?

We're talking about HS2 on Call You And Yours. The aim is to have 225mph trains between London and Birmingham by 2026, and then a second phase of development for high speed trains to Manchester and Leeds. The government says it will cost £50 billion but today business leaders called it a "grand folly". So do you think the whole thing should be called off or do you think it will transform rail travel in Britain? We want to hear your opinion if it will have an impact on you or if you have views about it. Perhaps you've been affected by previous rail projects and so have some experience to draw on? One way or another, for or against, call or email us and join in the debate.

Call You And Yours on 03700 100 444 or you can e-mail via the Radio 4 website or text on 84844.
