§ Mr. McNulty
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what progress London Underground has made with their planned Public-Private Partnership. 
§ Dr. Reid
London Underground are today sending a progress report on the Public-Private Partnership to those who responded to a "market sounding" consultation on the project held last year. The report sets out how the project is to be taken forward, and should help potential bidders prepare themselves before London Underground invite formal expressions of interest. A notice alerting other interested parties to the progress report will appear in the Official Journal. A copy of the report has been deposited in the Library.
