Theresa May remains 'absolutely committed' to HS2 rail link
PM ends speculation that she was preparing to drop new north-south railway from Tory general election manifesto
Theresa May has committed to delivering the HS2 high-speed rail link.
The prime minister was reportedly coming under pressure from Tory MPs in the south to cancel HS2, which the government projects will cost £55.7bn.
But her announcement will end speculation that she was preparing to drop the new north-south railway from the Conservatives’ general election manifesto.
