MPs examine train procurement

The House of Commons Transport Committee will today launch an enquiry into the procurement of the UK’s rolling stock of trains.

This follows a government decision to make Germany’s Siemens the preferred bidder for a £1.4bn Thameslink train contract.

The commission will question Ministers, and witnesses from Bombardier Transport, Siemens, the European Commission, and the Railway Association.
