Dear Ministry of Health,

Please point to the section of the Act that stipules what evidence can be requested. The information I have requested should be publicly available and I’ve assured you I meet the requirements of the Act. I note the Ombudsman guidelines for making an OIA via this site state, “Agencies should only query eligibility if there is a genuine need to do so” and I don’t see the need for you to do so in this instance.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ministry of Health,

I am familiar with the Act.

I note the ombudsman guidelines go on to state, “Agencies should only query eligibility if there is a genuine need to do so”. Can you provide a genuine need as to why you need to query my eligibility?

Yours faithfully,

George Morrison
