Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Dr Megan Woods, thank you for your email.  

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not always possible to
personally reply to all emails.  As such, the following guidelines apply:

o Invitations and meeting requests will be processed as soon as possible
and a staff member will be in contact with you in due course.
o 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.
o If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio
responsibilities, expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple
Members of Parliament, your correspondence will be noted and/or
transferred to another office.

If you are a resident in the Wigram electorate, please
email [1][email address] and the electorate office team
will get back to when they are able.
Thank you for the taking the time to write. 
Ngâ mihi,
Office of Hon Dr Megan Woods

Minister of Housing | Minister of Energy & Resources | Minister of
Research, Science & Innovation | Associate Minister of Finance | MP for

Dear officials,

Please expand my request to encompass both Minister Poto Williams and Minister Megan Woods.

Given Minister Woods has commented publicly that she asked officials for advice on rent controls (e.g. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politic...) I would like both ministers included rather than the request transferred.

Yours sincerely,

Margaret Mechum
