Transport for London (Other): ICO 4 Jun 2018

The complainant requested information on the Transport for London’s (TfL) decision on whether to grant Uber London Limited (ULL) an operator’s licence. TfL refused the request on the basis of the section 31 exemption for law enforcement. During the investigation TfL disclosed the requested information but the complainant wished the Commissioner to decide if TfL was correct to apply section 31 at the time of the request. The Commissioner’s decision is that TfL has demonstrated that section 31(1)(c),prejudice to the administration of justice, is engaged and the public interest favours maintaining the exemption. She requires no steps to be taken.
