Dear Mr Smith

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1744-2223

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 19
October 2022, asking for asbestos report for All Saints DLR station.

 

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

 

Please find a copy of the redacted surveys attached.

 

In accordance with the FOI Act we are not obliged to supply some of the
information as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of
access to information under Section 38, specifically sections 38(1)(a) &
38(1)(b). In this instance the exemption has been applied as the surveys
contain some security-related information, the disclosure of which would
be likely to endanger the health and safety of employees and members of
the general public. Please note, the information redacted under this
exemption does not relate in any way to the presence of asbestos.

 

Whilst we make no suggestion that you would use this information for
anything other than you own personal interest, disclosure of this
information to you has to be regarded as a disclosure to ‘the public at
large’. This information could potentially be obtained and utilised by
individuals who may wish to use this information to cause disruption,
commit crimes or breach the security of the TfL network. Release of the
redacted information could compromise security and safety preparedness on
the TfL network and could place TfL staff at risk by highlighting areas on
the network that could be susceptible to being targeted.

 

The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned.
We recognise the need for openness and transparency by public authorities,
but in this instance the public interest in applying the exemption, in
order to minimise risks to operational resilience, safe operation of the
TfL network, the welfare of staff and members of the general public,
outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

 

Furthermore, in accordance with TfL’s 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
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 any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
