Emails between OSPRI and DOC regarding 1080 and Kea

T. Benseman made this Official Information request to Department of Conservation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Department of Conservation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: T. Benseman

Dear Department of Conservation,

Between 1-1-2010 and 1-1-2014 there were 560 emails between DOC and Beef + Lamb NZ Ltd's front company OSPRI relating to 1080 poisoning of Kea. Please provide all the emails between 1-1-2010 and 1-1-2011. I note previously you have stated it is too much hard work to forward emails. There is mass email technology available that allows you to select hundreds of emails in minutes, and then forward to me.

Actually, that OIA was refused because you poor anaemic individuals found it "too much work" hence the reduced scope of this OIA so that you don't have to lift your heavy fingers too many times above the keys on that tax payer funded keyboard. I'm still waiting for these emails. Will you send them or do you need 20 days to dream up another story?
