The closing of an investigation into the mysterious Jiffy bag delivered from British Cycling to Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Critérium du Dauphiné is "not an exoneration of anyone" according to an influential MP.

Damian Collins, the chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee which interviewed various figures connected to the controversy and where Dave Brailsford said that the package contained the decongestant Fluimucil when giving evidence in December 2016, said that the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) investigation coming to an end without being able to determine what was in the package was not acceptable.
