Dear Mr Kearney

 

Our Ref:         FOI-3279-1819

 

Thank you for your request received on 5 March 2019 asking for copies of
communication about the Croydon Tram Crash Investigation.

 

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 hold some of the information you require. You asked for:

 

1.    Please provide me with copies of all communication received from the
SSHR Panel Chair from 9 July to 17 July 2018 referred to in this 17 July
2018 email.

 

In accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation
this information has been withheld, 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 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.

 

2.    Please provide me with copies of all communications from the
Commissioner of Transport and the Deputy Mayor for Transport concerning
this communication from the SSHR Panel Chair.

 

We do not hold the information requested. Communications between TfL and
the Deputy Mayor for Transport in relation to the Board paper was between
TfL General Counsel and the Deputy Mayor on 24 July 2018 at 14:41, 15:57
and 17:02 and were included in the previous data provided in response to
[1]MQ2018/2658.

 

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
