New HS2 Minister announced

The Government has announced Andrew Stephenson MP as the new minister responsible for HS2. He also has responsibility for Northern Powerhouse Rail and the Transpennine route upgrade.

The announcement follows the Government giving the high-speed rail line the green light last week, as well as committing to appoint a minister responsible for its progress.

Mr. Stephenson said that he was "delighted to be given responsibility for HS2", noting it was "essential we keep a firm grip on these vital projects".

He has previously held a number of ministerial roles, including at the Foreign Office and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
