The independent Office of Rail and Road (ORR) is wholly responsible for the conduct of the inquiry and ensuring that any potential conflicts are appropriately managed. A panel of experts will advise the Inquiry. The inquiry panel members are Dame Deirdre Hutton DBE, Mike Brown MVO, Anne Heal (a Non-Executive member of the ORR Board) and Michael Beswick. The panel is also one of the means which will ensure that the ORR’s own role, as regulator of Network Rail and of the train operating companies, is properly assessed by the Inquiry.
