Dear ESD,

I am terribly sorry for my lack of reply until now.

I would like to confirm that I am a permanent resident of New Zealand. Is there any documentation you would like me to send over to prove my status? If so, how should I do that?

Also, I'm happy to amend the scope of this request. I'm particularly interested in:
(a) meeting minutes relating to the development of the Christchurch Call
(b) documents providing formal or substantive advice on the development of the Christchurch Call text
(c) documents relating to the implementation of the Christchurch call by industry

Yours sincerely,

Alexander Pflaum
