Kia ora Sebastian,

We refer to your official information request dated 19 January 2022 as outlined below.

We have partially transferred part two of your request to the New Zealand Customs Service. This is because any briefings prepared by New Zealand Customs Service for the Minister of Customs will be held by that agency, and as such, are more closely connected with their functions. In these circumstances, we are required by section 14 of the Official Information Act 1982 to transfer your request.

You will hear further from Customs about this part of your request.

Kind regards
NZSIS
