The contingent liabilities entered into as part of the tripartite deal between the Department, Heathrow Airport and First Greater Western were about securing the future of the Heathrow Express services and delivering significant benefits to the Department, such as the savings generated from not building a replacement depot for Heathrow Express rolling stock at Langley as part of the HS2 scheme. They are not contingent on the third Runway proceeding.
