Full draft text of the proposed TPPA before it is signed

Brendan Moore made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

The request was refused by Minister of Trade.

From: Brendan Moore

Hi Tim,

Please provide a copy of the full draft text of the proposed TPPA before it is signed, in compliance with your obligations under the Official Information Act.

You'll notice that I'm sending you this request in spite of the notice on the submission page not to submit duplicate requests, but as the NZ government are choosing not to comply with NZ citizens' request that deals not be done in secret behind their backs, so I'm choosing not to comply with your request. It's long overdue that this government realises and acknowledges that it works for on behalf of, and is answerable to, the electorate.
