Dear Mr McGinley

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1079-1920

 

Thank you for your request of 12 July 2019 asking for information about
the fatigue survey of bus drivers carried out by Loughborough University
and the Swedish National Road and Transport Institute.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

The final research has not been withheld, it will be published this summer
as we have committed. We are currently finalising the report and talking
through the next steps with our bus operators and stakeholders such as the
union, Unite, and expect it to be available shortly.

 

In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply the
information you have requested as it is subject to a statutory exemption
to the right of access to information, under Section 22 of the Act.

 

In this instance the exemption has been applied as the information you
have requested is intended for future publication.

 

This exemption is subject to a public interest test, which requires us to
assess whether the public interest in applying the exemption outweighs the
public interest in disclosure. In this instance, it is considered that the
public interest favours the publication of this information, in context
and according to the pre-determined schedule, rather than in response to
your request, to ensure the information is provided accurately and in an
accessible manner.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for please feel free to
contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
