Arrest requests - student loans

Mr Cannicott made this Official Information request to Inland Revenue Department

The request was refused by Inland Revenue Department.

From: Mr Cannicott

Dear Inland Revenue Department,

On how many occasions has Inland Revenue requested the District Court to issue an arrest warrant for a liable parent who is about to leave New Zealand with the intent to avoid their student loan repayment obligations - under the terms of the Student Loan Scheme Amendment Act (3)? What was the outcome of each of these arrests.

Yours faithfully,

Sam C

Dear Inland Revenue Department,

Apologies - there was a typo in my previous request - I have re-written it below:

Dear Commissioners Correspondence,

Thank you for your response. I do not understand why this request has been refused. I am not asking for any personal information, only raw data around the number of warrants issued. Is it not in the public's interest to see the impact of a legislative reform?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Cannicott

I have never seen a response like this... it would be good to both ask for an internal review and Ombudsman opinion on this.

Ridiculous decision as no personal information was requested, please have this reviewed
