Dear sir or madam, I'm requesting FOI regarding my father (MR Peter Hilton) & I'm requesting FOI on everything you hold for my father

We answered

TfL Ref: 1372-1819

Thank you for your email received by us on 16 August 2018 asking for information in relation to your father Peter Hilton.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.

We can neither confirm nor deny we hold the information you require in accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data Protection legislation and as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of personal data would be a breach of Data Protection legislation, specifically the first principle which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose personal information when an individual would have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

If an individual requires access to their own personal data then a Subject Access Request can be made by them under the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations. Please see the following link for more information:

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

Yours sincerely

Jasmine Howard
FOI Case Officer
