Good afternoon George

Your formal OIA request has been received by Radio New Zealand. Under the Official Information Act 1982, we have 20 working days in which to respond to you and I expect we will have our reply posted/emailed to your address within that time. If for some reason, such as leave commitments or sickness, we are unable to respond to you within 20 working days, there is a further provision for an extension of time and I will write to you again if it becomes necessary to extend the time taken.

Yours sincerely,

Maggie Hedge | Assistant Inquiries Coordinator

Dear George, I have forwarded this email through to the OIA co-ordinator
for his response.  I do note a general email was sent through to you
covering some aspects of the Concert decision on 12 March.  The emails
requiring further response are still pending and will be answered as soon
as possible.  Please accept our apologies during this very extraordinary
time.
Kind regards

Dear Radio New Zealand Limited,

This OIA request is incredibly overdue. I hear Radio NZ journalist often complaining about delays in provision of official information, that rings hollow when their own organisation cannot follow through on its obligations under the OIA. Please provide this information ASAP.

Yours faithfully,

George Morrison
