Dear Ministry of Health,

Thank you for this update, but your extension notification is missing some information. OIA section 15A (4) requires agencies giving notice of an extension to specify the period of the extension. Could you please let me know how long the extension will be, and what the new due date is?

Yours sincerely,

To clarify, the Ministry does not have grounds to extend your request for
information, and this response is now overdue. However, we are unable to
provide you with a completed response at this time. The Ministry will
endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible. 
We are happy to provide you with an update in early January 2022, when we
have a better estimate of when a full response can be provided.

"We are happy to provide you with an update in early January 2022, when we have a better estimate of when a full response can be provided."

Are you now in a position to let me know when I can expect your response?

Yours sincerely,
