The liaison committee will provide an update on the progress of the project. It will be made up of representatives from the Government (Defra), Thames Water Utilities Limited and Bazalgette Tunnel Limited. The water management regulator, Ofwat, and the Environment Authority can participate as observers. An independent technical advisor will report on the technical aspects of construction. The State aid package includes six basic contractual documents to support the tunnel project, in case exceptional and highly unlikely risks arise, which the private sector cannot cover at acceptable or at all costs. The six basic documents are documents relating to the project licence granted by Ofwat for the design, construction, financing, operation and reception of the Thames Tideway Tunnel . . . . All these documents are long, detailed and technical.
