Tēnā koe,

 

Thank you for your OIA request to the Department of Internal Affairs
(included with this email).  Your OIA request has been incorrectly
transferred to the Department.  The Department advised during the transfer
consult that this request should not be transferred to the Department for
response as no information is held on this topic. 

 

As the information you have requested is not held by the Department of
Internal Affairs, but is believed to be held by, and more closely related
to the functions of the Ministry of Transport, we are transferring your
request to that agency for response, in accordance with section 14(b) of
the Official Information Act 1982.  The Ministry of Transport has also
advised that they can accept transfer of this request.

 

You can expect to hear from the receiving agency shortly in regard to your
request. 
If you would like to contact them directly, you are able to email them at
[1][email address]

 

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision to transfer.  Information about how to make a complaint is
available at [2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or Freephone 0800 802 602.  

 

Nāku, nā

(see

Please inform:

We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible, and in
any event no later than 1 March 2023, being 20 working days after the day

In your reply you have stated that:
