[DfT, Dec 2014]

[…] The information that is being released is provided in the [above] table, showing 3 hour and 1 hour morning peak arrivals into London on franchised long distance and suburban services on the Midland Mainline and the East Coast Mainline. DfT does not hold passenger loading data for open access operators.

The Department has determined that information showing loadings on London Midland services at Euston, and showing off-peak arrivals and peak and off-peak departures on the Midland Mainline and East Coast Mainline cannot be disclosed. It is being withheld under the exemption in Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Exemption 43(2) applies because the Department in conjunction with the train operators consider these data to be commercially sensitive. In applying this exemption we have had to balance the public interest in withholding the information against the public interest in disclosure.
