In your response to Question 2019/6384 you stated the Sandilands Incident Review Board "did not have a terms of reference", you did not provide meeting minutes, attendance lists, or names of attendees. Do think it's acceptable to be so un-transparent about TfL's organisational response to the worst tram incident in 90 years?

Transport for London (TfL) has been very transparent and has published the measures that it has taken and continues to take in response to the tragedy at Sandilands on the TfL website. TfL has also shared the outcome and findings of the investigations across its operations to ensure the lessons from Sandilands are learnt more widely.

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. It will always be necessary for an organisation to have internal discussions on a matter of such significance.
