Dear Mr Cook,

 

Information request

 

Your correspondence was received by Network Rail on 19^th July 2018. I can
confirm that your request is being processed under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). I have reviewed your request and
consulted with colleagues within Network Rail, but I cannot identify the
specific information you require from the details you have provided. To
help me meet your request, I would be grateful if you could provide
further details. In your request you have stated:

 

‘Please could you provide a copy of all internal and external
correspondence, meeting agendas, meeting notes, reports or other similar
information relating to South Western Railway's recent announcement that
the planned December 2018 timetable and service improvements will not now
be going ahead as planned.’

 

You have requested copies of all internal and external emails relating to
South Western Railways December 2018 timetable. It is possible that emails
relating to this matter could have been sent and received by hundreds of
staff within our capacity planning teams. It is unlikely that we would be
able to provide all of these emails within the 18 hours threshold to
comply with a FOI request. Therefore it would be helpful if you could
refine your request by asking for emails sent/received by a limited number
of staff. To assist you with this please find attach an organogram which
identifies our senior members of staff. Your request could also include
emails sent/received by more senior members of staff in capacity planning
i.e. Band 2 or above.

 

You have also requested meeting notes, reports or other similar
information. Meeting notes could capture any notes relating to the meeting
including notes jotted down in notebooks or on scraps of paper by
individual staff members. To assist us in providing the information you
require it may help if you narrow this request to formal notes such as
meeting minutes. Please could you also clarify whether you are interested
in all internal meetings relating to this matter, or whether you are only
interested in meetings held between Network Rail and Southwestern. Please
note it is possible that low level meetings could have occurred in
planning teams to disseminate the information to planning staff but may
not be relevant to the information you are seeking.

 

Please could you also provide a timeframe for your request.

 

Although I am unable to take a definitive view at this stage, I can advise
you that in its current form, without further clarification/narrowing, it
is likely this request would exceed the 18 hour threshold required by an
authority to comply with an FOI request under s12 of the Freedom of
Information Act.

 

I am unable to progress your request without this information, so I will
close your case until I receive your response. In accordance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 the 20 working days I have to respond to
your request will commence when I receive your clarification.

 

If you have any queries or I can be of any further assistance please do
not hesitate to contact me.

 

Kind regard
