Dear Sir/Madam, Could you please provide me with the fares briefing that is given to the GLA by TfL in connection to the fares announcement at the end of the year?

We answered

TfL Ref: 1972-1819

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 29 October 2018 asking for information about the fares briefing for this year.

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.

The information you requested will be published in due course, possibly towards the end November 2018 alongside the Mayoral Decision..

Therefore in accordance with the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply you with the contract you have requested as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information, under Section 22 of the Act. In this instance the exemption has been applied as the information you have requested is intended for future publication.

This exemption is subject to a public interest test, which requires us to assess whether the public interest in applying the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure. In this instance, it is considered that the public interest favours the publication of this information, in context and according to the pre-determined schedule, rather than in response to your request, to ensure the information is provided accurately and in an accessible manner.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Sara Thomas
