Referral of request to Standing Orders Committee
John Creser made this Official Information request to Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives
The request was partially successful.
From: John Creser
Dear Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives,
I'm writing to request that your office refer the following to the Standing Orders Committee <[email address]>
I'm writing in respect of petition https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/petition...
I am concerned because I was not provided with a copy of the draft report to consider the adverse findings nor given a reasonable opportunity to make submissions on those findings.
The contents of this report are supposed to become publicly available after the committee reports to the House, and I've now asked the clerk of the house to disclose the reasons for the draft report referred to in the committee minutes.
Obviously its my goal to have this matter dealt with and my evidence and submissions be properly considered, therefore I'd like to request that your committee consider if the process meets your requirements under standing orders for petitions which require they be dealt with according to the rules of fair play and natural justice.
Footnote: I'm referring this matter to your office after receiving advice from the following automated acknowledgment which appears several years out of date.

Thank you for your email.
The 52nd Parliament was dissolved on Sunday, 6 September. As a result, the Standing Orders Committee does not currently exist. It will be re-established when Parliament resumes after the election.
Any correspondence sent to this inbox will not be passed on to the committee until the new committee meets at the start of the 53rd Parliament.
We will be in touch if your query can be answered before the committee is re-established. Any response will be sent on behalf of the Clerk of the House, rather than the committee.
If you have any further questions, please contact our team at Select Committee Services on 04 817 9520 or [email address].
Thanks again for getting in touch.
Ngā mihi nui,
Select committee staff
