A senior member of the Rothschild family’s financial advisory group is to be a key part of a taskforce trying to promote the benefits of HS2.

Sir John Rose, deputy chairman of the Rothschild Group, is part of the Government’s HS2 Growth Taskforce.

The Rothschild group is headed by Baron David de Rothschild, a relative of Lord Rothschild of Waddesdon Manor, who opposes the line.

Waddesdon Manor and the Rothschild Group both refused to comment on the appointment.
