I haven't had time to go through the transport select committee report on HS2 in much detail. The committee has chosen to focus mostly on the capacity issue as making the case for HS2 (as the wider environmental and other benefits are widely disputed). One thing that immediately strikes me, however, is that the 'capacity constraint' argument that they use may not be as strong as the report makes out.
