Freedom of Information request - Ticketing and Revenue Update (Jun -Jul 2018)
Request ID: FOI-1274-1819
Date published: 04 December 2018
Dear Transport for London,
Please would you provide copies of the Ticketing and Revenue Update Issues #110 and #111 (with redaction if necessary).
TfL Ref: FOI-1274-1819
Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 4 August 2018 asking for copies of the Ticketing and Revenue Update (TRU) Issues #110 and #111.
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 some of the information you require.
Please find attached TRU 110. We are unable to provide a copy of TRU Issue 111 as it has not yet been published.
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’.
This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption.
Additionally some information relating to card skimming 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 card skimming information as it could be used by people wishing to undertake criminal activities such as fraud.
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 fraud, or any other criminal activity is prevented wherever possible to protect public funds.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.
We are unable to provide a copy of TRU Issue 111 as it has not yet been published.
