Maria Eagle: The Public Accounts Committee has confirmed Ministers responsible for West Coast rail franchise fiasco

Labour press release

Maria Eagle MP, Labour's Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on the West Coast rail franchise fiasco, said:

"It's time that David Cameron took responsibility for the rail franchising fiasco, instead of allowing Ministers to hide behind their civil servants. The Government must accept the finding of the Public Accounts Committee that it was the short-sighted decision by Ministers to axe external audits of multi-billion pound contracts that ended up with at least £50million of taxpayers' money going down the drain. It is a disgrace that every politician responsible for the bungled franchise deal has either remained in the Cabinet or been promoted to it."
