Question

Following repeated questions from me regarding the Equality Impact of your 2012 Fare Rise (3940/2011, 3549/2011, 2984/2011) you finally revealed that the Equality Impact Assessment you promised Londoners on the major policy decision of your 2012 fare rise was covered in the Equality Impact Assessment of your 2010 Transport for London Business Plan. Despite repeated requests Transport for London will not share this Equality Impact Assessment. Following my question to you 0971/2012 you assured me that Transport for London would write to me to clarify the situation. This has not happened. It is now 8 months since I first requested this data. I ask again, and request that you fully respond to both parts of this question: A) Why is Transport for London withholding this document from the public? B) Through your role as Chair of Transport for London will you ensure this document is made public?
