Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 4 August 2017 asking for information about a report.
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.
However, please note that this information is exempt under s41(1) as it contains information that is provided to us in confidence from a third party and its disclosure would constitute a breach of confidence by that party, by virtue of it being supplied to us under no obligation with no expectation that it would be shared for wider disclosure and the express request that the information should not be shared externally.
Disclosure of this information is likely to inhibit the free and frank exchange of, and therefore our access to, information that is critical to assurances around project delivery.
Section 41(1) is an absolute exemption to the right of access and no further consideration of the public interest is required.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
