My Expert Advisor Mr Jak Wild has informed me that he has in his possessions examples of such Activity Reports which are included in a 'Coronial Inquest Documentation Bundle' provided to a family Mr Wild is also advising, whose son also died whilst a patient in Te Whare o Matairangi.

For this reason my expectation is for a prompt and complete release of the information requested given the precedent Mr Wild has informed me of, due to the electronic ease in which information can be collated, and due to the urgency required for ongoing investigations into my sons death, including a part-heard Coronial Inquest.

Please provide me the information in electronic form on USB media stick or via email.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Lyn Copland
