Asked if the Government should look again at the Thameslink contract, the PMS said that the Government was legally bound by the decision made on Thameslink. The PMS also pointed out that there was an ongoing review of procurement rules as part of the growth review.
Asked if the Crossrail review meant it was more likely that a British based company would win the contract, the PMS said that the purpose of the process was to ensure that, while we were abiding with EU procurement rules, we were not putting British companies at a disadvantage.
