Answered By: 
The Mayor

Each year TfL answers around 2,500 requests made under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations and in 2013/14 to date has replied to 88 per cent of requests within the statutory deadline.

Clean Air in London's request has been particularly complex to answer and the information is not held in the summary format requested. However, a reply will be finalised shortly.
