Unallocated Citizenship Applications

Thayr made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Currently waiting for a response from Department of Internal Affairs, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Thayr

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
I am still waiting for citizenship website to show number of unallocated application for each month
from previous request https://fyi.org.nz/request/17596-unalloc...
it said will be update it soon but it still not update it with information requested ,and it is still showing the total number of unallocated applications at end of each month which is so confusing. So my request again is to show how many application for each month still to need to be allocated between March 2021 to December 2021 for paper and online application separately. I clearly showed example from another request in my previous request. and here more clear one.

So data should look like this
Date Paper online
March 2021 500 1000 unallocated application remain that received in March
April 2021 400 2000 unallocated application remain that received in April
and so on
Yours faithfully,
