Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Dr Megan Woods, 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.
* 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, your correspondence will be noted and/or
transferred to another office.

If you are a resident in the Wigram electorate, please
email [1][email address] and the electorate office team
will get back to when they are able.
Thank you for the taking the time to write. 
Ngâ mihi,

Office of Hon Dr Megan Woods

Minister of Housing | Minister of Energy & Resources | Minister of
Research, Science & Innovation | Associate Minister of Finance | MP for

Dear Hamish,

 

I am writing in regards to your Official Information Act request received
22 June 2021. You requested the following information:

" all offical information into considerations you make and criteria that
you use when selecting a motel or other similar type of accommodation for
emergency housing.
I would like to know any and all of the considerations/criteria but
particularly if proximity to KFC and other such fast food establishments
is one of them."

 

Your request has been transferred to Hon Carmel Sepuloni’s office as the
information to which your request relates is believed to be more closely
connected with the functions of the Minister for Social Development and
Employment.  In these circumstances, we are required by section 14 of the
Official Information Act 1982 to transfer your request.

Tçnâ koe Hamish,

 

Thank you for your request regarding Emergency Housing transferred from
the Office of Hon Carmel Sepuloni on 23 June 2021, under the Official
Information Act 1982. Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate
officials at National Office to respond. You may expect a decision
regarding your request to be sent to you as soon as possible.

 

The information you have requested will likely contain Ministry employee
names and contact details. We need to consult relevant Ministry employees

and/or who are not decision-makers, please advise us as soon as possible
and we will treat your request as amended accordingly. 

 

In any event, the Ministry will make and communicate to you a decision on
your request as soon as reasonably practicable, and within the statutory
maximum time limits – including the extension of time limits (Section 15A
of the Act).
