Nick Clegg: High Speed Rail great for Sheffield

Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

"This is great news for the whole country, but especially for Sheffield and the great cities of the North.

"For too long governments have spent too much time concentrating on London and the South East. This is a big investment that will link North and South so that everybody can share in the prosperity of the future.

"It will take some years to build but this is the right thing to do. It is a long-term investment to help heal the North-South divide.

"Liberal Democrats have long supported High Speed Rail and I am proud that the Coalition is making it happen."
