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.

The documents requested contain or refer to legally privileged advice and relate directly to the seeking, provision and result of legal advice. Transport for London (TfL) has published its response to a similar request made under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI Act) (reference FOI-3281-1819) which explained that, in accordance with the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply the information as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information under section 42 of the FOI Act.
