HC Deb 12 June 1989 vol 154 c332W
28. Mr. Prescott

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will place in the Library a copy of the report prepared for his Department by Deloitte, Haskins and Sells, entitled, "Study of Structural Options for Railway Privatisation."

Mr. Channon

No. Deloitte, Haskins and Sells was not asked to make recommendations or reach conclusions: its study for the Department and British Rail consists of a set of working papers which will form a basis for further studies. They contain commercially confidential information and would be unsuitable for publication.

If a decision is taken to privatise British Rail, I shall publish the Government's conclusions in due course.
