Supplementary memorandum from the Department
for Transport (RFF 05a)
During the evidence session on rail fares and
franchising that I attended on 25 February, I stated that
my officials, during a private session of companies rated as red
for the purposes of our internal franchise monitoring systems,
but had not identified the individual companies concerned (Q241).
On reading the transcript of the private PAC
session in question, I note that in fact my officials had identified
the companies in question. I apologise for having inadvertently
provided incorrect information to the Committee.
