No in­quiry over £170m HS2 deal

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

The Government has ruled out hold­ing an in­quiry af­ter an engi­neer­ing firm walked away from a £170m HS2 con­tract amid claims of con­flicts of in­ter­est.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Lord Ahmad of Wim­ble­don in­sisted it was a mat­ter for HS2 Ltd and pointed out the com­pany had un­der­taken “a thor­ough re­view” into the is­sues raised. He was re­spond­ing to a ques­tion by Lib­eral Demo­crat peer Baroness Ran­der­son whether there would be a White­hall in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
