||<p>HS2 Ltd has had a Whistleblowing Policy since 2014. It was updated in 2018 to incorporate
the launch of the “Speak Out” reporting line. The Whistleblowing Policy is published
internally on the HS2 Ltd intranet. HS2 Ltd is now working on launching the “Speak
Out” reporting line outside of HS2 Ltd. At present, where any whistleblowing allegations
are raised to the HS2 Helpdesk, such allegations are referred to HS2’s independent
“Speak Out” line supplier.</p><p> </p><p>Network Rail’s whistleblowing policy is published
