Please note information about meetings related to the Ministers’
portfolios will be proactively released (this does not include personal or
constituency matters). For each meeting in scope, the summary would list:
date, time (start and finish), brief description, location, who the
meeting was with, and the portfolio. If you attend a meeting with the
Minister on behalf of an organisation, the name of the organisation will
be released. If you are a senior staff member at an organisation, or meet
with the Minister in your personal capacity, your name may also be
released. The location of the meeting will be released, unless it is a
private residence. The proactive release will be consistent with the
provisions in the Official Information Act, including privacy
considerations. Under the Privacy Act 1993 you have the right to ask for a
copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to
be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of
your information, or to have it corrected, or are concerned about the
release of your information in the meeting disclosure, please contact the
sender. You can read more about the proactive release policy at

Môrena Genevieve,


This information is not currently held. However, local authorities often
provide lists of the legislation they use themselves which should provide
you with what you are after:




As this information is not held, your request is being refused under
section 18(e) of the Official Information Act 1982. You have the right,
under section 28(3) of the Act, to seek an investigation and review of
this decision by the Office of the Ombudsman.


I hope this helps.



Ngâ mihi



Fergus Broom | Private Secretary – Local Government | Office of Hon Nanaia
