Thameslink rolling stock project: communications between ministers, civil servants and consortiums

Answer to a freedom of information request for details of all communications on Thameslink rolling stock bid since May 2010.



We received a request for all communications, written and electronic, on the Thameslink rolling stock bid since May 2010 between ministers, civil servants, political advisors and the Siemens’ consortium.

We received a similar request for the communication with the Bombardier consortium.

We have not answered either of these requests as doing so would be expensive (over £600) and we do not consider that to be a good use of public funds.
