We answered

TfL Ref: 1333-1920

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 1 August 2019 asking for information about the coffee kiosk at Canonbury Overground station.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm that we hold some of the information you require.

In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply some of the information requested as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information under section 43(2).

In this instance the section 43(2) exemption has been applied as disclosure of the terms and conditions of a business lease between Landlord and tenant are commercially confidential and personal to the parties involved. If we were to release the sensitive commercial information you are asking for, this would or be likely to prejudice our tenant’s business operations as well as TfL’s ability to secure future kiosk rentals at the best rates possible.

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, particularly where the expenditure of public money is concerned, but in this instance the public interest in ensuring that we are able to obtain the best value for public money outweighs the general public interest in increasing transparency of our processes.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
