Kia ora Mr Finnegan


Thank you for your OIA request regarding the Disputes Tribunal. We just
need to clarify a couple things with you:


o Can you please clarify the time period you’re wanting your information
broken down by? (i.e. the last five years).
o For question 1 of your request we’ve interpreted this as the number of
new claims heard with the Disputes Tribunal. Please note, this data
will exclude those claims not requiring a hearing and data will be
counted by disposal date.
o For questions 2-4 of your request, we will be able to provide data for
rehearing and appeals which will also be counted by their outcome


Can you please confirm you’re happy with that interpretation?


Please note that we cannot provide data as percentages. This is because
application types are counted separately, and the Ministry reporting is
not structured in a way that allows there representation as a percentage.


Thank you
