I refer to your 10 May 2019 request, in which you have requested the
following information under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act):

 1. “Please provide all official information associated with the referred
Medical Issues Working Group, that defines what the group does, and
whom it is made up of.
 2. Please provide all official information associated with what agreed
sets of actions have been developed by the Medical Issues Working
Group.
 3. Please provide all other official information associated with both
the  development of an agreed set of actions by the Medical Issues
Working Group, and the Medical Issues Working Group themselves.”

 

ACC needs to clarify the specific details of your question for “all other
official information associated with both the  development of an agreed
set of actions by the Medical Issues Working Group, and the Medical Issues
Working Group themselves” as they way your request is currently worded is
very broad in scope, and would involve substantial manual collation and
research.

 

ACC can provide you with key documentation associated with the Medical
Issues Working Group such as terms of reference, meeting agendas, meeting
minutes and slides from group workshops, if this is what you are after.

 

Can you please let us know by  Wednesday 22 May confirming whether you are
happy to receive the above documentation to answer question 3. The Act
allows a 20 working day timeframe for an agency to make a decision on a
request it has received. Once ACC has received a response to this
clarification, the 20 working day response time may start again.
