HS2 jobsCommenting on Labour transport spokesperson Mary Creagh's statement that they do, in fact, support HS2, Liberal Democrat Transport Minister, Baroness Kramer said:

"The Labour leadership's muddle over HS2 has caused confusion for business and led to their own party warning of the damage their political games could do to the North of England.

"It's welcome they are now saying they do support the North-South rail line.

"Ed Miliband and Ed Balls need to promise to stick to this position and stop putting party political tactics over the national interest."
