I refer to your official information request dated 2 June 2024 for “all
emails, texts and communications relating to complaints about Manurewa
Marae and concerns regarding Te Pati Māori and/or Takutai Tarsh Kemp”.

 

The Official Information Act requires that we advise you of our decision
on your request no later than 20 working days after the day we received
your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time
limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the
time to make our decision, to 31 July 2024.

 

This extension is necessary because investigations required to make a
decision on your request are ongoing, and as such a proper response cannot
reasonably be made within the original time limit.

 

Stats NZ is undertaking an investigation into the allegations of misuse of
census data collected at Manurewa Marae, led by independent investigator
Doug Craig. The scope of the investigation, and terms of reference, are
available on our website:
[1]https://www.stats.govt.nz/news/scope-of-....

 

The investigation is still in progress. As mentioned in the [2]hyperlinked
statement, the investigation is expected to be concluded no later than 31
July 2024, and the findings will be shared with the New Zealand Police.

 

You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of
this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at
[3]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

 

If you wish to discuss any aspect of your request with us, including this
decision, please feel free to contact me.

 

Ngā mihi,
