“Network Rail is embroiled in a conflict of interest row after the Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin drafted in a “special director” to keep an eye on the ailing organisation.

Mr McLoughlin asked the former Eurostar chairman Richard Brown to sit on Network Rail’s board last month when he confirmed that the state-backed group’s £38.5bn spending programme was in disarray.”  http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/network-rail-embroiled-in-conflict-of-interest-row-over-its-new-special-director-10366365.html
