Tçnâ koe,

On behalf of Hon Nanaia Mahuta,
thank you for your email.  Please accept this as acknowledgement that your
email has been received by my office.

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not always possible to
personally reply to all emails.  As such,
the following guidelines apply:

·        Invitations and meeting
requests will be processed as soon as possible and a staff member will be
in contact with you in due course 

·        All media queries will
be responded to by a staff member 

·        Requests for official
information will be managed in accordance with the provisions of the
Official Information Act 1982, which may include transfer to a more
relevant Minister or agency 

·         If your
email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio responsibilities,
expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple Members of Parliament,
then your opinion will be noted and your correspondence may be transferred
to another office, or there may be no further
response to you

Thank you for the taking the time to write.

Nga mihi,


Office of Hon Nanaia Mahuta
