Maxim Brown made this Official Information request to Minister of Trade

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Minister of Trade should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Maxim Brown

Dear Minister of Trade,
I am requesting that the TPPA draft text is made public. Our people would never agree to letting corporations take over our sovereignty and leaving us in a situation where we cant afford medicine and have to eat food that is unsafe. The public need to see this draft text.

Yours faithfully,
Bianca Sy

Minister of Trade

On behalf of Hon Tim Groser, thank you for your email.  Your
correspondence has been noted and will be recorded.


All correspondence, including email,  is routed through our mail tracking
process.  Although e-mail increases the speed of delivery, the
“behind-the-scenes” efforts of the Minister’s staff in responding to
mail cannot always provide the kind of speedy response users of email may


While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important, if it is
obvious that you are writing only to express a personal view your opinion
will be noted but a response beyond this acknowledgement may not be sent.


Thank you again.

Dear T Groser (MIN),

Your answer to keep the draft text of the tppa secret is not legitimate. Europe managed to see their draft text so why are you making these false claims.

Yours sincerely,

Maxim Brown
