Ministry for Ethnic Communities- OIA2122-0019

john luke made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

The request was successful.

From: john luke

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Thanks for your recent response, OIA2122-0019

In your response you said “you have sought nominations from relevant government agencies for membership to a Ministerial Ethnic Communities Advisory Group” may I ask the name of agencies you sought nominations from and how you ask for the nominations? The copy of these communications- such as email would be helpful. Also, since the new Ministry has been established, are there any future communication or discussion around this Advisory committee? Further, has the new Ministry has any future plan in setting up any new committee/ board etc?

Yours faithfully,

john luke

Dear Ministry for Ethnic Communities,

Thank you for your reply. I noted, "Regarding Part 1 of your request, although recommended candidates for the proposed MECAG were provided by several Ministers and agencies, the Ministry for Ethnic
Communities does not hold a record of all agencies approached for nominations. I am
therefore declining this part of your request under section 18(e) of the Act. "

I don't agreed with the declined. I fully understand you don't hold all the information, I am happy for your to provide whatever you have on file.

Yours sincerely,

john luke
