With the decimation of the LibDems in the election, the HS2 Hybrid Bill committee lost one of their members. The committee has since postponed their visit to Buckinghamshire. David Liddington, Aylesbury MP, told Mix 96
“Following the postponement, I subsequently spoke to the Committee Chairman, Robert Syms MP. The reason for the postponement is that there are likely to be changes to the Committee’s membership. The Liberal Democrat member was not re-elected.
“The new parliamentary arithmetic will probably mean the appointment of an SNP member and I gather that the Labour membership may also change.”
The original assumption was that the committee would not change membership after the election.
