The meeting minutes for the COVID-19 Technical Advisory Group
([1]https://www.health.govt.nz/about-ministr...)
span across seven months of weekly meetings and would involve a
substantial amount of collation and therefore may be refused under section
18(f) of the Act. If it is possible for you to narrow the scope of your
request by selecting a shorter time frame, we may be able to provide you
with information.

If you wish to discuss this purposed refinement further please feel free
to do so.

Kia ora John Luke

Was there a particular time period you seek for the COVID-19 Technical
Advisory Group meeting minutes? As these are weekly meetings span across
seven months and will involve substantial manual collation and may be
refused under 18(f) of the Act.
