I refer the hon. Member to my answer given on 18 July 2011, Hansard, columns 708-9W, to Maria Eagle, which sets out the details of consultants contracted to work on the McNulty review of Rail Value for Money.

Consultants, by the terms of the contract, were required to declare existing or potential conflicts of interest prior to, and through the life of, the contract.

The McNulty Review was an independent study and as such the Department does not hold records of the ongoing scrutiny undertaken by the study team.
