Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

Please find attached copies of the relevant correspondence held.

Whilst a request made under the Freedom of Information Act allows you to ask for information held at the time of your request (in this case, the 9th August), we are aware of some correspondence which is held after this date, and have included this in the attached documents.

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation some personal data has been removed from the attached documents, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act.

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’.
