11th February 2020

Andrew Mitchell welcomes HS2 announcement and pays tribute to the work of West Midlands Mayor Andy Street.

Andrew Mitchell MP speaking in the House of Commons, Feb 2020, HS2

My right hon. Friend’s comprehensive announcement will be widely welcomed across the west midlands and in Birmingham, and nowhere more so than in the royal town of Sutton Coldfield. Will he pay tribute to the superb leadership of our West Midlands Mayor Andy Street in marshalling the arguments and in putting the case for something that will underwrite our economic prosperity for the future?

My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. I salute the work of Andy Street and his vision for transport in the west midlands, which will be supported, encouraged and fomented by HS2.
