Dear R Y Ong
EXTENSION OF TIME TO ANSWER OFFICIAL INFORMATION REQUEST
I refer to your official information request on 16 March 2020 relating to copies of meeting
minutes held by the National Animal Advisory Committee (NAWAC).
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) will not be able to respond within the timeframe set
out in the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) because the consultation necessary to make a
decision on your request is such that a proper response cannot reasonably be made within
the normal 20 working day time limit.
MPI will reply to your request by no later than 25 June 2020, earlier if possible.
You have the right under section 28(3) of the OIA to seek an investigation and review by the
Ombudsman of our decision to extend the time limit for responding to your request.
