Item 64/11/47 from the 22 November 2017 Safety, Sustainability and Human Resources Panel (SSHR) Minutes (http://content.tfl.gov.uk/item03-minutes.pdf) records a TfL representative reporting that “CIRAS had submitted its 2014 report to FirstGroup, the operator of the tram and had not shared it with TfL at the time. Following the overturning incident on 9 November 2016, CIRAS shared relevant data with the investigating parties.”

Yet your response to Question 2017/3874 contains a link to the same CIRAS report which clearly shows this report was published for public viewing in March 2014. Can you provide any evidence to confirm the TfL representative's statement to the 22 November 2017 SSHR Panel Meeting that TfL did not receive a copy of the 2014 CIRAS report until after the Croydon Tram Crash?

I have no reason to believe that the post meeting note to the minutes of the 22 November 2017 Safety, Sustainability and Human Resources Panel was not accurate, but have asked Transport for London (TfL) to undertake a further check to confirm that position. TfL will provide you with a response.
