From: Jan Rivers

Dear Massey University,

Please can you supply the background documentation including correspondence, emails and discussion including documents from prior to the decision to seek legal advice which were created as the University decided how to respond to the Feminism 2020 meeting at Massey University’s Wellington campus lecture theatre leading up to the cancellation today 16 October 2019 including but not limited to the decision to seek legal advice.

Please supply any copies of the correspondence from students, from the Tertiary Education Union and the students union at Massey and others protesting the right to hold the meeting that may have had a bearing on the idea that holding the meeting was threatening or dangerous to students at the University. Please include any correspondence on this topic.

Please also include the documentation and correspondence including emails and reports created that related to the decision for Massey University to renegotiate the booking after it had been committed.

Yours faithfully,

Jan Rivers

From: Banner, Jodie
Massey University

Dear Jan,

 

Further to your request for Official Information received by the
University on 17 October 2019, I am writing to notify you of the
requirement for an extension of time to respond to your request.
Consultations necessary to make a decision on the request are such that a
proper response to the request cannot reasonably be made within the
original time limit. In addition, the University is dealing with a number
of information requests at the current time, and meeting the original time
limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the University.

 

I will endeavour to respond as soon as reasonably practicable but no later
than 18 December 2019.

 

Please be advised of your right to make a complaint to the Ombudsman about
this extension.                               

 

Kind regards,

Jodie Banner
