Dear Transport for London,

A published 23 July 2021 letter from the Deputy Mayor for Transport to a London bus driver (cf. http://saferoxfordstreet.blogspot.com/20...) clearly states —

“I understand you and Assembly Member Keith Prince met with Transport for London (TfL) staff on June 10 to discuss bus driver safety during the pandemic.”

Please provide me with any emails or memos from the TfL executives who participated in that meeting (i.e., Chief Safety Officer, Head of Bus Business Development, Head of Health & Wellbeing and Senior Bus Safety Development Manager) and the Deputy Mayor that—

(a) discuss TfL's preparations for that meeting ; and,
(b) report to the Deputy Mayor any discussions which took place at at the 10 June 2021 meeting.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Kearney

 

Our Ref:         FOI-1391-2122

 

Thank you for your request received on 1 October 2021 asking for
information about a meeting held on 10 June 2021 to discuss bus driver
safety during the pandemic.

 

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.

 

To confirm, TfL attendees included: Lilli Matson - Chief Safety, Health &
Environment Officer, Samantha Philips - Head of Health and Wellbeing, Tom
Cunnington - Head of Buses Business Development, Jane Lupson - Senior Bus
Safety Development Manager, and Euan MacFarlane - Government Relations

briefing note also went to City Hall for their information

including the slide deck that was shared with Keith Prince following

In accordance with our obligations under Data Protection legislation some
personal data has been removed, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI
Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of
the legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the UK
General Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of
personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this
personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be
disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make
the processing ‘fair’.

 

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute
exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest
favours use of the exemption.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

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

 

Yours sincerely
