Closed petition Give Wales funding to reflect UK Government spending on HS2 in England

We believe that the UK Government is depriving Wales of billions of pounds as the UK Government has classified HS2 as an "England and Wales" project although not a single piece of track will be laid in Wales.

More details

Linking Wales north to south along with three new metros could revitalise public transport, forming a truly national Welsh rail service. We ask that the UK Government gives Wales funding as a result of HS2 spending, via the Barnett consequential, just like it has done for Scotland and Northern Ireland. This could be used for rail improvements in Wales.
