Dear Transport for London,

Please could you provide me with a breakdown of the number of collisions between cyclists and bus drivers in London between 2008 to date. I would also like the same data for collisions between cyclists and HGVs in London. Please could you provide the ethnic origin of each bus and HGV driver involved in each collision for this period – 2008 to 2013. I do not need the names, sex etc of the drivers; just their ethnic origin please.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Harriot

Subject: Outcome of internal review

I am contacting you regarding the internal review of your request for information concerning collisions between cyclists and HGVs in London. This review has been carried out following your email of 19 April 2014 regarding the late response to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

It is clear that in failing to provide you with a response within 20 working days, TfL has breached the requirements of section 10 of the Act, and on behalf of TfL, please accept my apologies for the shortcomings in the handling of your request. The panel has looked into the handling of your request and have found that an administration error led to your request being mistakenly listed as closed without any record of the response actually being sent.

The review found that the response was ready to be issued on 18 December which, even if it had been sent, would still have been a breach of section 10. The FOI Case Management Team have been reminded of their responsibilities and we are satisfied that this is a unique occurrence but please accept my apologies for the failings in the handling of your request.

Please find attached the information that was intended to be provided to you.

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.

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 (www.ico.gov.uk).

Yours sincerely

Lee Hill
Information Access Adviser
