Britain Government Seeks Privatization Of Assets

Britain Government seeks privatization of assets. As part of another £5 billion privatisation spree, the Government said it would explore the sale of its 49% stake in the NATS Holdings Limited (NATS). The row emerged as the Treasury said it would also allow Network Rail Limited to sell assets and reinvest the money in infrastructure. The Government confirmed it is pressing ahead with the reprivatisation of the UK Green Investment Bank PLC.

Network Rail To Sell Assets

Network Rail Limited intends to sell £1.8 billion of non-core assets. Peter Hendy, Chairman, claimed "the bulk" of its upgrade plans will go ahead, although some will be completed later than originally scheduled. He announced the plan to sell assets in a review into Network Rail's £12.5 billion enhancement plan for 2014-19, which he found was "undeliverable".
