Statement on Newstalk ZB - 14 April 2022

Chuck Schooner made this Official Information request to Chris Hipkins

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chuck Schooner to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Chuck Schooner

Dear Chris Hipkins,

This morning you were on Mike Hosking and you mentioned that

"The guidance has now gone out to government departments that we do expect to see workers back in the CBD".

Please provide any and all correspondence, emails, directives, guidance to government agencies in relation to workers going back into their brand new offices, multi million dollar fit-outs that have all been empty whilst our public servants have had a two year holiday. Not that the productivity will change but at least get them back in the office for their glorified benefit to support the productive side of the economy that pays their wages.

Please include in the correspondence above

- What does the guidance look like - 80, 90 or 100% of staff in office?
- Number of days workers are required to be in office
- How many agencies have pushed back if any - what emails came back pushing back
- Who sent the directive out?
- I want to see the formal directive sent to the individual agencies and their responses if any

Yours faithfully,
Chuck
