Short commings of the Disputes Tribunal

Mary Phillips made this Official Information request to Kris Faafoi

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mary Phillips to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Mary Phillips

Dear Kris Faafoi,

Please explain to me why when I purchase a service from a GST registered Incorporated Society they are able to convince the Disputes Tribunal that they cannot hear my dispute and I need to go to the High Court and seek Judicial Revue. If I purchase a service from a GST Registered trader who is not incorporated with the Inc Society the Disputes Tribunal can hear my dispute.

Yours faithfully,

Mary Phillips

Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Kris Faafoi, thank you for your email. 

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not always possible to
personally reply to all emails.  As such, the following guidelines apply:

·        Invitations and meeting requests will be processed as soon as
possible and a staff member will be in contact with you in due course

·        All media queries will be responded to by a staff member

·        Requests for official information will be managed in accordance
with the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982, which may
include transfer to a more relevant Minister or agency

·        If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio
responsibilities, expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple
Members of Parliament, then your opinion will be noted and your
correspondence may be transferred to another office, or there may be no
further response to you

Thank you for the taking the time to write.

Nga mihi,

Office of Hon Kris Faafoi

Dear Kris Faafoi,

Thank you for your reply, however if your employee is not able to find a document that clarifys my inquiry how would the referee in the Disputes Tribunal be able to rely on that decision?
Either it is valid or it isnt.
If it isnt valid then do something to put it right.

Yours faithfully,

Mary Phillips
