Dear BAW Russell
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) request of 1 August 2020,
regarding visits to prisons by Members of Parliament in the current term.
Corrections needs to extend the timeframe of our response to your request by 20
working days, pursuant to section 15A(1)(b) of the OIA, as consultations necessary
to make a decision on the request are such that a proper response to the request
cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit. Therefore, you can expect
to receive a response to your request by 25 September 2020. If you no longer
require this information, please let us know as soon as possible.
Please be advised that should you have any concerns regarding this extension you
have the right to ask an Ombudsman to investigate our decision to extend the
timeframe. Contact details are: Office of the Ombudsman, PO Box 10152,
