I refer to your request for information dated 20 May 2019, which was received by Greater 
Wellington Regional Council on 20 May 2019. You have requested the following information: 
You are currently running a Facebook advertisement advising that “On Tuesday 21 May, some 
MetLink bus services will be reduced between 9.30am and 3pm while drivers attend their union 

Please provide all correspondence and documents discussing this advertisement. Please include any 
correspondence and documents that were considered in forming the decision to run the 
advertisement. (For clarity, this would include any notification received about the AGM, as well as 
any notification about the inability to maintain services.) Please also include any draft versions of 
the advertisement. 

Please provide all correspondence, documents and internal guidelines around presenting union

Please provide the amount of money spent on the advertisement, its reach, as well as the criteria for
