Dear Transport for Wales Rail Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Transport for Wales Rail Limited's handling of my FOI request 'Two carriages Journeys'.

I note that you have aggregated my requests, which authorities are permitted to do under the FOI Act — but as you may be aware, ICO guidance (https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...) states that requests may only be aggregated for the purposes of a Section 12 exemption if they relate to the same or similar information.

In fact, my requests concern demonstrably different pieces of information.

For this reason I believe the exemption is invalid, and request that you review your response.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

I also ask for an internal review of your refusal to answer questions 5 and 6 to which you apply no exemptions.

Yours faithfully,

Arfon Jones
