Dear OIA_Requests (OT),

I have not as yet received - in the New Year - the promised substantive response (as per letter dated Dec 23 2019; subsequent to the extension letter dated Dec 4) to my OIA from November 2019.

It is my understanding that by law, under all circumstances, Oranga Tamariki (OT) should have responded by now and therefore is in breach of its statutory obligations.

I therefore respectfully request an explanation and a final response fulfilling that which was promised in writing to me by OT Dec 23 2019.

Yours sincerely,

Blair Donkin

information with you in the new year.
 
We have been working on your request and are currently still in the

patience.

Dear OIA_Requests (OT),

I appreciate that it is an involved process but that would have been known by OT at the time of the original request, when the extension was sought and when I was advised of the new deadline of early in the new year; which has clearly passed.

Please provide a time frame in which I can expect this request to be fulfilled.

Yours sincerely,

Blair Donkin
