Dear Transport for London,

Thank you for the contact details for the Highways Agency.

I asked:

"Please provide a list of all reports known to TfL which analyse theM4 Bus Lane.
"This is to include a brief description of the contents of each."

You have said:

"TfL does not hold the information that you have requested."

The answer must be either that there are no reports known to TfL, or else that there are, in which case TfL can list them.

"In particular, list all reports by the TRL."

TfL either does or does not have knowledge of any reports by the TRL.

"What before and / or after data is held to the knowledge of TfL by government departments of the effects of the M4 Bus Lane?"

The answer is either that TfL is not aware of any such data, or it can describe it.

"What was the consultation process before it was introduced?"

"What was the analysis that suggested the M4 Bus Lane might be beneficial?"

It may be that TfL does not know, but this should be made clear.
In particular, TfL either was or was not consulted, and TfL must know this.

"What directions have been given by the Mayor or government ministers regarding this bus lane?"

Either to TfL's knowledge no directions have been given by the Mayor, or else TfL can say what directions have been given.

If TfL does not know, it can find out.

Accordingly, I ask you to review and clarify your response.

Yours faithfully,
