2) What has the occupancy rate been for all rooms at the abovementioned two other Hamilton managed isolation facilities for the 12 months from 1 November 2020 to 31 October 2021.

3) What has the occupancy rate been for all rooms at the Distinction (Hotel) Hamilton for the period from 1 November 2020 until the date its use was changed to a "community isolation quarantine facility".

4) How much has it cost to-date to manage and operate the Ibis Tainui and Jet Park Hamilton since the date they were first used as managed isolation facilities until 31 October 2021.

5) How much has it cost to-date to provide military, police and security guard services at the Ibis Tainui and Jet Park Hamilton since the date they were first used as managed isolation facilities until 31 October 2021.

7) How much has it cost to-date to provide military, police and security guard services at the Distinction (Hotel) Hamilton since the date it was first used as a managed isolation facility until the date its use was changed to a "community isolation quarantine facility."
