station by RNZ, including diary entries, briefings, advice, memos,
correspondence etc.

 
Before responding to your request, I need to inform you that there are
grounds to refuse your request in full under section 18(f) of the OIA, as

Kia ora Tabitha

Thanks for your quick response. My amended request is

This could include diary entries, briefings, advice, memos, correspondence etc. Please exclude public correspondence dated after the 4 February 2020 (as I'm guessing your office will have been flooded after the media stories began).

Yours sincerely,

Gareth
