Good morning

On behalf of Hon Judith Collins thank you for your email.

Minister Collins has no Ministerial responsibility for the matters you raise and therefore your request doesn't fall within the OIA.

Dear Sandy Grove,

Can you please advise the agency or persons that would be able to advise on the oil pipeline stated above. As energy minister and government media representative on the issue it was assumed this responsibility fell with Minister Collins.

If further clarity is needed, expanision on any (listed party or otherwise) correspondence Minister Collins has had in regards to the oil pipeline rupture would be sufficient.

Yours sincerely,

Reuben Tilley

Dear Hon. Dr Megan Woods,

Thank you for your response.

My initial request was sent when Judith Collins was the minister.

The question posed was:
'Can you please advise on your knowledge of the KAURI RUAKAKA LIMITED previously known as ORAVIDA KAURI LIMITED of which your husband David WONG-TUNG was a director till 1 July 2017 in the rupture of the oil pipeline between Whangarei and Auckland.'

To expand on this since the change of government would be any correspondence in relation to her husband or the company / affiliates whilst in the position of Minister of Energy and Resources.

If you could provide any insight that would be much appreciated.

Ngā mihi,
Reuben Tilley

Dear Mr Tilley

I refer to your email of 31 October 2018 seeking information held by Hon Judith Collins in her previous capacity as Minister of Energy and Resources.

I am writing to confirm that, in accordance with Cabinet Office guidance, official ministerial papers and files may be retained by Ministers on leaving office, or they may be deposited with Archives New Zealand or other approved repositories. However, papers that Ministers do not wish to retain, and that are of no interest to Archives New Zealand, are expected to be destroyed through a secure document destruction process. They are not retained by the office.

On that basis, Minister Woods does not hold any papers or other information in scope of your request, and the office has no reason to believe such information is held by another Minister of the Crown or department or organisation. Your request is therefore refused under section 18(g) of the Official Information Act 1982.

Should you wish to undertake a search of Archives, this can be done through the Archway portal, which can be found here: https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/.

Office of Hon Dr Megan Woods
Minister of Energy and Resources | Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration | Minister of Research, Science and Innovation | Minister Responsible for the Earthquake Commission | Minister for Government Digital Services

Authorised by Hon Dr Megan Woods MP, Parliament Buildings, Wellington.
