On behalf of the Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment, thank
you for your email.

 

As you will be aware, the Prime Minister announced a 4 level COVID-19
alert system for New Zealand. As a result, the Ministry of Business,
Innovation, and Employment has shifted to alternative ways of working.

 

Should your email be a request for Official Information this response
serves as your acknowledgement, and we will endeavour to respond to you as
soon as practicable.

Dear Robert,

On behalf of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment I acknowledge your email of 2 May 2020 requesting under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act), the following:

Could you please supply the updated figures for unemployment benefit numbers and job seekers benefit numbers for March 2020 and April 2020.

This letter is to advise you that your request has been transferred to the Ministry of Social Development.

This is because the information you have requested is not held by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. Section 14(b)(i) of the Official Information Act allows me to transfer any request where the information is not held, but is believed to be held by another department, organisation or Minister of the Crown.

I trust you find the information helpful. You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.
