Kia ora Oscar,
Thank you for your email addressed to the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Jacinda
Ardern dated 17 March 2022 asking for;
"a list of all questions submitted for the fundraiser linked below,
separated by questions that were answered and those that weren't. Please
include any notes/transcripts that were made for answered/unanswered
Section 2 of the Official Information Act 1982 states that ‘official
(a) means any information held by—
(ii) a Minister of the Crown in his official capacity.
Information that is held in any other capacity, such as Leader of the New
Zealand Labour Party, as a Member of Parliament or as a private
individual, is not official information and falls outside the scope of the
Act. The Prime Minister attended this event in her capacity as Labour
leader, rather than Prime Minister or member of the Cabinet. Therefore
your request is not considered a request for official information under
Private Secretary (Executive Support)
