Thank you for contacting the Ministerial office of Hon Kiri Allan,
Minister of Justice, Associate Minister of Finance, Associate Minister for

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be very

and it is not always possible to provide a personal response to every
email received:

* If your message is for Minister Allan’s advice, or if you have copied
your email to another Minister and/or Member of Parliament with more
appropriate portfolio responsibilities, then this will be noted,
* If you have invited Minister Allan to an event then a member of staff
may contact you for more information if the Minister’s attendance
might be possible,
* If you have made a request for official information then this will be
manged in accordance with the provisions of the Official Information
Act 1982, which may include transfer to a more relevant Minister or
* If you are a journalist then your request will be referred to the
Minister’s press secretary,
* If your correspondence is to the Minister as the Member of Parliament
for the East Coast, this will be referred to her electorate office.
