The neutron electric dipole moment is calculated in the cloudy bag model and the colour dielectric model. In both the U(1)A anomaly is consistently incorporated. Both models give a similar value for the pion loop contribution, but the cloudy bag model has an equally large direct contribution which is proportional to the anomalous magnetic moment.
