MPs on the Transport Committee say there are serious shortcomings in the Department for Transport's capability and capacity to manage rail franchising.

Government Response

The Transport Committee's inquiry draws together and follows up on a number of key issues raised in recent reviews and considers the extent to which rail franchising is achieving its key policy intentions. The Committee examines a current franchise competition, which will act as a case study.
