Motion text

That this House notes the Government’s announcement on the Integrated Rail Plan for the North and Midlands on 18 November 2021; recognises the dismay of many Council Leaders, Metro Mayors and hon. Members across the north of England at the scaling back of promises made under the original Northern Powerhouse Rail proposal; asserts that the Government, through the Integrated Rail Plan, is not delivering the extra capacity and better connectivity truly required to level-up public transport infrastructure in the north of England; further notes with concern much of the support for HS2 in the north of England was predicated on realising the full potential of the proposals under Northern Powerhouse Rail; and agrees with the calls of the respective Metro Mayors of Greater Manchester, the Liverpool City Region, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and the North of Tyne to revert back to the original plans set out under Northern Powerhouse Rail.
