Dear Scott Official Information Act request relating to the COVID-19 Group Community panel
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (the Act) request received on 4 October 2021. You
“For every meeting of the Community Panel I would like to request copies of:
1. The agenda
2. All pre-reading materials distributed to panellists
3. The meeting minutes or other report summarising the meeting and the panel ists’
I have decided under section 15A of the Act to extend the time limits for deciding on your request by
an additional 20 working days. Consequently, the extended due date for your response will be
30 November 2021.
The extension is required because of the external consultations needed to make a decision on your
request. Despite the extension, a response will be sent to you as soon as possible.
You have the right to ask the Ombudsman to investigate and review my decision under section 28(3)
of the Act.
