Dear Ms Harris

 

Our ref:  FOI-1369-1314

 

Thank you for your email received on 31 October 2013 asking for copies of
correspondence between Kate Hoey MP and TfL.

Your request is being considered under the terms of the Environmental
Information Regulations (EIRs).

 

Unfortunately we will be unable to resolve your request within the initial
statutory 20 working day deadline, as it is taking longer than expected to
check a number of sources for relevant information and compile the
correspondence.

 

To enable us to fully consider your request, in accordance with the EIRs
we have had to extend the deadline for providing a response to 40 working
days from the date we received your request. The amended date for a final
response is now 30 December 2013. We are working hard to ensure that you
receive a response before this date. 

 

I apologise for the delay and any inconvenience this may cause you. If you
have any queries or would like to discuss your request, please feel free
to contact me.

Your request is being considered under the terms of the Environmental

Unfortunately because of its complexity, we will be unable to resolve your
request within the initial statutory 20 working day deadline. This is
because of the number of high level officers who need to check their
records to see if they hold any relevant information.

Dear Transport for London,

Re: FOI-1369-1314

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews

I am writing to request an internal review of Transport for London's handling of my FOI request 'Clapham Old Town: Correspondence between Kate Hoey MP and TfL'.

I first made this request on 30 October 2013.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Marya Harris

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Ms Harris

Our Ref: IRV-086-1314

Thank you for your request for an internal review which was received by Transport for London (TfL) on 31 December 2013.

You have stated that you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request for information under the Environmental Information Regulations.

The review will be conducted by an internal review panel in accordance with our Internal Review Procedure, which is available via the following URL:

http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/f...

Dear Ms Harris

 

Our ref:  FOI-1369-1314

 

Thank you for your email received on 31 October 2013 asking for copies of
correspondence between Kate Hoey MP and TfL relating to the Clapham Old
Town Regeneration Project (formerly Clapham Gateway) over the last 12
months. I am sorry for the delay in replying.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the
Environmental Information Regulations and our information access policy. I
can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

 

Please find attached copies of this correspondence.

 

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA) personal data such as the names and addresses of
Ms Hoey’s constituents and direct telephone numbers have 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 DPA, specifically the first
principle of the DPA 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 of Schedule 2 of the Data
Protection Act which would make the processing ‘fair’.

 

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

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your response to my FOI request re Clapham Old Town.

The PDF you sent me entitled “TfL's involvement and actions around the Clapham Gateway Scheme” refers to two letters which I was not sent and I request that these two letters are sent to me electronically as soon as possible, as I believe they should have been sent as part of my origin al request.

These are:

· A letter from Kate Hoey MP to Peter Hendy that would have been sent on or some time before 19 March 2013

· Peter Hendy’s reply to Kate Hoey’s letter that was sent to Caroline Pidgeon on 2 April 2013.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Marya Harris

17 January 2014

 

Dear Ms Harris

 

Subject: Outcome of internal review

 

I am contacting you regarding the internal review of your request for
information concerning correspondence between TfL and Kate Hoey MP
regarding Clapham Old Town. This review has been carried out following
your email of 31 December 2013 regarding the late response to your request
for information under the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR).

 

I believe you have now received a response to your request on 8 January
2014.

 

In accordance with Regulation 7 of the EIR, an extension of an additional
20 working days may be applied to respond to requests for information
where the complexity and volume of the information requested means that it
is impracticable to comply with the request within the initial 20 working
days. As this information was potentially held across a significant number
of staff it required manual searches of multiple email accounts and then
further manual extraction and redaction of information that wasn’t
relevant to your request or contained personal data. Once the relevant
correspondence had been collated across the various sources it then
required further checking to ensure that all of the relevant emails had
been included.

 

The panel has found that the extension under Regulation 7 of the EIR was
correctly applied. However, having reviewed the handling of your request
it is clear that in failing to provide you with a response within 40
working days, TfL has breached the requirements of Regulation 5(2) of the
EIR. The process described above took longer than anticipated,
particularly regarding the identification and redaction of personal data
contained within the correspondence and clarifying that all of the
information we held was included in our response. On behalf of TfL, please
accept my apologies for the shortcomings in the handling of your request
and for any frustration and inconvenience this may have caused.

 

In view of these failings, we do not consider that this necessarily
represents the end of the internal review process. We consider that it
would be appropriate in the context of this request to offer you a further
internal review of the content of the response, even though you have
already exercised your right to a review in view of our failure to provide
a timely response. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with the quality of
the response, you may still request a further internal review.

 

However, if you are dissatisfied with the internal review actions to date
you can refer the matter to the independent authority responsible for
enforcing the Freedom of Information Act, at the following address:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane

Wilmslow

Cheshire SK9 5AF

 

A complaint form is also available on the ICO’s website
([1]www.ico.gov.uk).

 

Yours sincerely
