Dear Matthew Dickinson

 

Our ref: FOI-1703-1920/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 5
September 2019 asking for a copy of Issue 119 of the Ticketing & Revenue
Update.

 

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. Please find the requested
update attached.

 

Please note that in accordance with section 40(2) of the FOI Act, any
personal information that would allow an individual to be identified
unfairly has been removed. This is because the disclosure of such personal
data would be a breach of the Data Protection legislation specifically the
first principle of the legislation which requires all processing of
personal data to be fair and lawful. As these bulletins are written for an
internal audience we do not believe that any of the individuals that could
be identified from information within the documents would have expected
that information to enter the public domain. We therefore believe that it
would be unfair to disclose this personal information in these
circumstances.

Additionally some information relating to fraud risk and criminal activity
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 to information that covers
magnetic ticket issues and fare evasion, which could assist anyone wishing
to evade paying their fare.

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 favour 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
