Minister of State Services

Thank you for your email addressed to the Hon Paula Bennett. She
appreciates you taking the time to contact her.

All correspondence, including email, is entered into our mail tracking
process. Although e-mail delivery is instant, the time required to respond
to the high number received makes it impossible to provide an equally
instant response from the Minister.

Minister Bennett will read your views but a response beyond this
acknowledgement may not be sent.

Dear P Bennett (MIN),

I do not agree with your response as the State Services ave made the following comment regarding job cuts in the MPI - "The State Services Commission has told MPI it should not attempt further restructures, and we really need to hear why the Ministry is ploughing on regardless."

Yours sincerely,

Graham Carter

Dear Millie Carr,

We have requested an Official Info Request from your department.

We would like to point out that by law you were required to have responded promptly to our request for information, which you have failed to do.

It would appear that your department is deliberately postposing this request and not responding with the required information, and we believe that certain parts of the information will be particularly embarrassing and are likely to reveal the high levels of corruption and collusion with regards the business sector of the community.

Our information request has been dragged out for well over 40 days, which is an extraordinary long time given the relevant simple nature of the questions we have asked.

Choosing to ignore this request does not mean that it will go away
.
Your attention to this matter would be appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
