Scott [FYI request #15473 email]
Dear Scott Official Information Act request relating to meeting minutes and advice provided
Thank you for your request made under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act),
received on 15 June 2021. You requested:
“all meeting minutes of the two advisory groups, and copies of all advice they
provided to the two ministers, for the period 18 May to 15 June.
Further, I would like to request copies of all COVID-19 Response Weekly
Reports, dated from the beginning of February to 15 June.”
I believe that the part of your request for information about COVID-19 Response
Weekly Reports is more closely connected to the work of the Minister for COVID-19
Response, Hon Chris Hipkins. Accordingly, I have decided under section 14(b)(ii) of the
Act to transfer this part of your request to the Minister for COVID-19 Response. The
other part of the request has not been transferred, and the Department of the Prime
Minister and Cabinet will respond in due course.
Minister Hipkins has the usual timeframes under the Act from receipt of this transfer to
make a decision on your request.
