The National Audit Office has released a report following the announcement that Virgin Trains will continue to run the London to Scotland line for the next 23 months.
The £5bn franchise was awarded to FirstGroup in October but that decision was contested by Richard Branson and Virgin Train.
The Government has already indicated that repaying bidding costs to the companies competing for the franchise is likely to land taxpayers with a bill of around £40 million.
