Hi Antony

Your OIA request has come to me to respond to.

 

I would like to have a chat with you about what you have asked for.  In
particular your request for reports that recommend school consolidations
or assessing the benefits of closing small or rural schools in various
parts of New Zealand or  documents that identifies economies of scale or
efficiency gain with such closures.

 

This will require considerable collation and research and may even be
declined under section 18 of the OIA 1982. 

If I could be clearer about what you want it would make it easier and we
can hopefully provide something that is helpful.

 

Let me know your number and a good time to call.

Philippa
