Please see my response to Mayor's Question 2019/6384. The Sandilands Review Steering Group is an internal working meeting to discuss non-operational issues related to the tragedy at Sandilands, including claims and legal advice. Its purpose is to enable legal advice to be given and relevant information, including updates on progress with the handling of personal injury claims, to be considered and discussed. Please see my response to Mayor's Question 2019/12314 regarding documents submitted by Transport for London (TfL) to the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB), SNC-Lavalin, the Office for Rail and Road (ORR) or British Transport Police.

Decisions made by TfL’s HSE Director in relation to the RAIB, SNC Lavalin, ORR or the British Transport Police investigations were not reviewed, edited or approved at the Sandilands Review Board meetings. Comments were sought separately from some members of the Group at various points, but this was not done at the meetings.
