Documents relating to my request for evidence of compliance with section 36(1) of Crown Entities Act requirement to advise entity directly of exercise of power

Harris Leigh made this Official Information request to David Parker

The request was partially successful.

From: Harris Leigh

Dear Minister for the Environment,

On 2 March 2023 I requested a copy of your written notice to the Chief Executive of the Environmental Protection Authority as required under s36(1) of the Crown Entities Act 2004 including time and date it was sent along with other documents.

By law you were required to respond by 30 March 2023. You have declined to do so.

I seek copies of all documentation held by yourself and your office, including held by your ministerial advisers and press secretary, relating to this request and your decision not to comply with the law with respect to it.

Please note, if you do provide a response to my earlier request outside the timeframe provided for by the law, such a response would not extinguish this request.

This request is seeking information relating to your decision to decline to comply with your legal obligations.

Yours faithfully,

Harris Leigh
