Dear Mr Cox

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1868-1819

 

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 16
October 2018.

 

Your request will be processed in accordance with the requirements of the
Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy.

 

I can confirm we do hold the information you require. You asked for: a
copy of the Ticketing and Revenue Update Issue #111, as well as any issued
subsequently (with redaction as necessary).

 

Please find attached the Ticketing Revenue Updates #111 and #112.

 

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data
Protection legislation some personal data has 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 legislation, specifically the first
principle 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’.

Additionally some information relating to gateline fraud has been redacted
as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to
information under section 31(a) – Law Enforcement.

A disclosure under the Freedom of Information act is a disclosure ‘to the
world at large’ and whilst we make no suggestion that you would use the
information for anything other than your own personal interest, in this
instance the exemption has been applied as information regarding card
fraud and its detection could be used by people wishing to commit fraud,
or by those undertaking such criminal activities to avoid detection.

The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned. We
recognise the need for openness and transparency by public authorities,
but in this instance feel that balance lies in favor of withholding the
information to ensure that fare evasion is prevented wherever possible to
protect public funds.

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.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Eva Hextall / TfL FOI Team,

Thank you very much for releasing the published TRU issues.

One question I have relates to the redaction in TRU112, which is much broader than in the copy of TRU111 sent, even though it appears from the context that the sections in question are similar between the two issues. Would you be able to publish a brief description of the redacted information in TRU112?

Yours sincerely,

Chris Cox

Request reference: FOI-1868-1819

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Mr Cox

 

Thank you for your email. The information that has been exempt from
disclosure in TRU 112  concerns bank card fraud and ticket misuse. As
stated in my response,  the exemption has been applied as this information
could be used by people wishing to commit fraud, or by those undertaking
such criminal activities to avoid detection.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Eva Hextall

FOI Case Officer
