Francisca Griffin made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

The request was refused by Minister of Trade.

From: Francisca Griffin

Dear Minister of Trade, Tim Grosser,

If Malaysia can release TPPA text before it’s signed, why can't NZ? We're intelligent people who care about our country, of course we want what is best for it, as you do.
Please show us some respect, release the full draft text to us, so we can have a say.

Yours faithfully,

Francisca Griffin
