On behalf of Hon Craig Foss, thank you for your e-mail.


While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not possible to provide
a personal response to every e-mail which is received.


Where the Minister has portfolio or MP for Tukituki responsibility for the
issues that you have raised, your correspondence will be considered and
responded to where appropriate.


If you are inviting the Minister to attend an event you are organising,
our office will be in touch shortly.


Kind regards
