Launch of CMA merger inquiry
The CMA launched a merger investigation on 5 August 2014.
5 August 2014: The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is considering the award of the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern passenger rail franchise to Govia Thameslink Railway Limited (a joint venture between Go-Ahead Holding Limited and Keolis (UK) Limited) and whether that award has resulted, or may be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services.
Please send written representations about any competition or public interest to:
