The Transport Secretary, Justine Greening, has announced that a public consultation on the compensation scheme for people whose properties are affected by HS2 has been delayed until the autumn. In a written statement to Parliament Ms Greening reminded MPs that she had promised a generous compensation package for those affected, which went above the minimum required by law, and stated that it is imperative that the right package is put in place.

Volunteers needed

Antony Chapman, Treasurer of the Wendover HS2 action group, is setting up a small fund-raising committee, and needs volunteers. If you are interested please contact him, either by phone on 01296 623730 or by email at chap@halevalley.wanadoo.co.uk. Funds are needed for day-to-day local campaigning activities, as well as to help finance the national campaign against HS2.

HS2 Action Alliance

We want to hit our biggest milestone of the campaign so far:

100,000 supporters of HS2 Action Alliance

We're not there yet - and that's where you come in. If you've been waiting for the right time to step up and pitch in to help the campaign against HS2 - it's here.

Just think about that number for a second: 100,000 people who, like you, know how critical it is to make the powerful case against HS2 - and are willing to step up and own a piece of making that happen.

Get everyone you know who think HS2 represents the wrong choice for our country to sign up as a supporter TODAY at www.hs2aa.org/signup It takes less than a minute to sign up but here's why it matters: This campaign is only as strong as the people behind it. If we don't build our grassroots organisation -- we cannot win. It's as simple as that.

HS2 Action Alliance is a national campaign making the powerful case against HS2. For further information about HS2, its implications and the campaign visit www.hs2actionalliance.org or follow us on twitter @hs2aa or facebook at http://www.facebook.com/HS2AA
