TCC decides that new trains for the Piccadilly Line cannot be held up by procurement dispute

Public Law analysis: This case somewhat starkly makes clear that where the automatic suspension of a public procurement process is preventing the putting in place of a key public service, it is very unlikely that the court will refuse to lift the suspension on American Cyanamid principles (ACPs).  The case also makes clear that challengers cannot assume that commercial confidentiality will be enforced by way of private hearings in public procurement disputes, written by Adam Heppinstall.
