Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) request of 1 October 2021,
requesting information about unlock hours for people in prison.
Corrections needs to extend the timeframe of our response to your request by 20
working days, pursuant to section 15A(1)(b) of the OIA, as consultations necessary
to make a decision on the request are such that a proper response to the request
cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit. Therefore, you can expect
to receive a response to your request by 29 November 2021. If you no longer require
this information please let us know as soon as possible.
Please be advised that should you have any concerns regarding this response you
have the right to ask the Ombudsman to investigate our decision to extend the
timeframe. Contact details are: Office of the Ombudsman, PO Box 10152, Wellington
