Dear Northern Ireland Transport Holding Company,

If you need any further explanation please ask.
Dear Mr. Kempster,
Firstly, we apologise for the delay in responding with our
acknowledgement. We can confirm receipt of your request for information
which we will handle under the Freedom of Information Act.
Please be advised that the Act allows us up to 20 working days (excluding
statutory holidays) to process a valid request for information. We may be
in touch with you should we require any further clarification.
If no clarifications are required, you should expect to receive a response
on or before 12 August 2019.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Dear Mr. Kempster,
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request (our ref: FOI823) which
was received on 14 July 2020.
Your request was as follows: "Please could you send me all of your bus
Glider drivers duty sheets and bus running boards/diagrams"
As required by section 1(1)(a) Freedom of Information Act (the “Act”), we
can confirm that we do hold an extensive amount of information which would
fall within the scope in your request. However, we consider that the
requested information is exempt from release under section 38 of the Act.
This exemption applies where disclosure of the information would be likely
to endanger the safety of any individual.
The use of this exemption was considered by the Information Commissioner
in Decision Notice FS50607218, issued in March 2016, which related to
information in a similar vein. We consider that the same or similar
arguments apply to your request.
Disclosures made under the Act are deemed to be a ‘disclosure to the world
at large’ and whilst we make no suggestion that you would use this
information for anything other than your own personal interests, it could
be used by individuals who wish to cause harm or disruption to our
customers, staff and network. The public interest in protecting
individuals and infrastructure is very high and our upmost priority. We
recognise that there are individual and personal interests in
understanding the workings of our networks and services, but these clearly
do not outweigh the wider public interest relating to safety.
We trust this answers your request, however, if you are not satisfied with
this response you may request a review by writing to the Translink General
Counsel and Company Secretary, who has overall responsibility for Freedom
of Information and Data Protection issues within this organisation.
Correspondence should be addressed to the above-mentioned at: Translink,
22 Great Victoria Street, Belfast BT2 7LX or by email to
[NITHCo / Translink request email].
If having exhausted the review process you are not content that your
request or review has been dealt with correctly, you have a further right
of appeal to the Information Commissioner who will make an independent
judgement. The address of the Information Commissioner is: Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. The address of the Information
Commissioner’s Office for Northern Ireland is: 3rd floor, 14 Cromac Place,
Gasworks, Belfast, BT7 2JB.
