The request was refused by Transport for London.

Dear Transport for London,

The Mayor’s response to Question 2018/2612 dated 19 October 2018 http://questions.london.gov.uk/QuestionS... … specifically identifies the "executive responsible for leading TfL's efforts to assist the RAIB, ORR, British Transport Police, SNC-Lavalin and the Coroner” during the Croydon Crash Investigation from the period 9 November 2016 to the present. For the period 9 November 2016 to 20 December 2017, please provide me with copies of (a) any email communication received by the Chair of the TfL Audit Committee discussing the fitness of the “executive responsible for leading TfL’s efforts to assist the RAIB, ORR, British Transport Police, SNC-Lavalin and the Coroner” to hold a leadership position in the Croydon Crash Investigation and (b) any notes, emails, letters, decision memorandums generated in response to such email communication.

Dear Mr Kearney

 

Our Ref:          FOI-2007-1819

 

Thank you for your request received on 1 November 2018 asking for
communications discussing TfL Leadership of the Croydon 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 do hold the information you require.

 

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.

 

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

 

Yours sincerely
