Thank you for your request which we received on 26 March 2023, asking for communications from the Commissioner to the Government, from March this year, about the Elizabeth Line needing more trains.

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

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you have requested. We carried out an email search but it didn’t capture anything that meets the requirements of your request. However, we understand a letter was sent from the Mayor to the Government so I’d recommend you contact the GLA directly at [email protected] for more information.

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

Yours sincerely
