Alex Loftus started this petition to UK Parliament

We are in an unprecedented situation with a global pandemic of Coronavirus.The UK government is expecting 8 million people to be hospitslised- a colossal amount for the NHS to cope with. They are asking people to stay away from pubs and restaurants etc, not actually closing them, but stopping them from claiming on their business insurance. In addition to this, many self employed people will be losing businesses as the country grinds to a halt, yet there is little financial provision.

I call upon the government to stop building HS2 and divert that money to the areas and people that need it in the current catastrophe. Stop spending money on buying up land, which will only make the London- Birmingham journey half an hour quicker, but cost in the region of £100bn. Start using that money to support our citizens-  both financially in anticipation of the global recession that may follow, and by providing our citizens with the best healthcare we can. 

Please sign and share if you think the welfare of our citizens should come before faster train journey!
