From: David Long

Dear New Zealand Security Intelligence Service,

I would like to obtain any records kept by the SIS on my mother, Margaret Constance Long (nee Brand). She was born on March 12, 1927. She was active in the equal pay campaign of 1958 and various other social issues until the 2000s.

Yours faithfully,

David Long

Dear Mr Long

Thank you for your e-mail of 20 June 2017 requesting information concerning your mother, Margaret Constance Long (nee Brand), that may be held by the NZSIS. Your request will be considered under the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). A decision on your request will be notified to you as soon as reasonably practicable and in any case no later than twenty working days. However, if an extension of the time limit is necessary, we will, of course, let you know.

Please note, it is NZSIS’s usual practice to ask the requester to substantiate the family relationship if and when privacy-sensitive information is located.

I do note your request has been posted through the FYI website, which is a public forum for OIA requests and responses. Our preference would be for a response to be sent directly to you. If amenable, are you able to email [email address] your email address.

We appreciate your assistance.

Yours sincerely
Privacy Officer
NZSIS
