From: Hon Grant Robertson

Kia Ora,

Thank you for contacting Hon Grant Robertson, Deputy Prime Minister, the
Minister of Finance, Minister for Infrastructure, Minister for Sport and
Recreation, Minister for Racing and MP for Wellington Central.

The Minister considers all correspondence important and appreciates you
taking the time to write. As Minister Robertson receives a large amount of
correspondence it is not always possible to personally reply to all
emails.

The following guidelines apply:

Portfolio related correspondence will be considered and  responded to
where appropriate

Invitations and requests to meet with the Minister will be processed as
soon as possible and a staff member will be in contact with you in due
course

Media queries will be responded to by a staff member.

Requests for official information will be managed in accordance with the
provisions of the Official Information Act 1982, which may include
transfer to a more relevant Minister or agency.

If your correspondence is to the Minister as the Member of Parliament for
Wellington Central, this will be referred to his electorate office.

If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio responsibilities,
expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple Members of Parliament,
then your opinion will be noted and your correspondence may be transferred
to another office, or there may be no further response to you.

 

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

Dear Mr Morrison

I am assisting the Minister of Finance with your Official Information Act
request received 30 November 2021. Your request is:

 

                Please provide me with all communications, including no
surprises notifications, received by you as shareholding minister of Air
NZ relating to the company for the period of 19 June 2012 to 20 June 2019.

 

It is unclear from your request if you are seeking:

 

 1. Correspondence received by Hon Grant Robertson in the period while he
has been shareholding Minister of Air NZ.
 2. Correspondence received by the various shareholding Ministers for the
period of 19 June 2012 to 20 June 2019.

 

Can you please clarify which of these you are seeking information on.

 

Regardless of which option you chose, the scope of your request is
extremely wide as you are not restricting your request by the nature of
communication, or the sender, and the topic area “relating to the company”
is likewise broad.  Under either scope there are potentially thousands of
communications, including Treasury advice to the Minister regarding Air
NZ, and it is likely that your request will be refused under s18(f) of the
Official Information Act:

 

“that the information requested cannot be made available without
substantial collation or research”.

 

I therefore recommend that you consider asking for more specific
information. For example, you could narrow your request to communications
from Air NZ; or you could narrow it to communications from Christopher
Luxon.

 

I am happy to work with you to refine your request. Please note that I
will not be in the office between 25 December 2021 and 17 January 2022
(inclusive).

 

Yours faithfully

 

Ian Stewart
