“As members of the Transport Select Committee, we would like to draw attention to the fact that the attached report was not unanimous. We disagree with certain conclusions. Specifically we would highlight the following:

We believe the evidence in the Laidlaw Report shows that Ministers asked the right, penetrating questions during the process but were given inaccurate responses by officials;

It has further been shown that resources were available to officials to commission external advice and support should they have required it;

We do not believe that it is was “irresponsible” to run the new franchise process first on the WCML as the Department has shown itself perfectly capable of managing other complex projects in this period.

“Whilst we agree that there were certainly serious failings on the part of officials in the Department, and that there are serious lessons to be learned, we are not in agreement with all of the Select Committee’s conclusions and comments. It was a majority report voted for by the Chairman but it was not a unanimous report.”
