I refer to your request of 9 July for information relating to drug arrests and convictions.

"How many convictions were made in Southland for possessing methamphetamine from January 1 2018 to July 9 2019?
How many convictions were made in Southland for distributing methamphetamine from January 1 2018 to July 9 2019?
How many convictions were made in Southland for manufacturing methamphetamine from January 1 2018 to July 9 2019?

I am therefore transferring this part of your request to the Ministry of Justice pursuant to section 14 of the Official Information Act 1982.

If you have any issues/questions please let me know.
