Court set to rule on Tube row


LAWYERS for London Underground and Transport for London are due to appear in the Court of Appeal today (Thursday) over the publication of a sensitive report into the part privatisation of the Tube network.

The court battle follows an appeal lodged by LU to place an injunction on a TfL-commissioned report by chartered accountant Deloitte & Touche after the high court ruled last month that a reduced version could be published.

LU will argue that publication of the document, which centres around bidders financial arrangements for the £9 billion upgrade of the two deep-level lines deals, will mean it loses its bargaining power during on-going negotiations for the £4 billion sub-surface lines contract.
