The North West Business Leadership Team (NWBLT) has welcomed the Transport Secretary Philip Hammond's recent confirmation of support for new High Speed Rail links between London and the North.

  'High Speed to the North West: Grasping the Opportunity' This sets out the case for accelerating the construction of the new High Speed Rail link, to revitalise the North West's economy and meet the long-term needs of the UK as a whole.
