Why is this called Mental Health but the request is for emails? If related, wouldn't a title like "Emails about Mental Health" be better?

Dear Ms Bryan

 

Our Ref:         FOI-0251-1920 / FOI-0252-1920 / FOI-0346-1920 /
FOI-0347-1920 / FOI-0350-1920

 

Thank you for your e-mails asking for various pieces of information about
taxis and mental health issues.

 

Your requests have been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy.

 

Under section 12 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to comply with a
request if we estimate that the cost of determining whether we hold the
information, locating and retrieving it and extracting it from other
information would exceed the appropriate limit. This is calculated at £25
per hour for every hour spent on the activities described. Section
12(4)(a) of the Act provides for the costs of complying with two or more
requests made in a 60 working day period which are, to any extent, for the
same or similar information to be combined. Section 12(4)(b) provides for
requests made by different people acting in concert, or in pursuance of a
campaign to be considered together under section 12.

 

Our records show that you have made five FOI requests to TfL within a one
week, up to and including the date of your most recent requests of 1 May
2019. Additionally, we believe that you are working in concert with
another requester that has also submitted requests that are clearly
similar in nature which, in total, accounts for 12 open requests from
persons we believe to be acting on concert. We are therefore refusing all
of these outstanding requests under section 12 of the FOI Act. Please note
any further requests that we receive within a 60 working day timeframe
from you or the other requester may also be subject to consideration under
section 12 of FOI.

 

While we appreciate there is a high level of interest in how we are
regulating taxis and the private hire trade, there is a small team
available to respond to these requests and the burden placed on them has
to be balanced with their substantive roles. To help bring the cost of
responding to your request within the £450 limit, you may wish to
prioritise the information you are most interested in and make a single
request on a topic, rather than several requests in a short period of time
in order to make the best use of the processing time available to you
under the FOI Act.

 

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

 

Yours sincerely
