Request for Law Society submission: Maori Land Court, draft Retention and Disposal Appraisal Report, 7 August 2014
From: Katherine Raue
Dear New Zealand Law Society,
I acknowledge that the NZLS is not subject to the OIA. I am making this request due to strong public interest in the information that is the subject of the request, and the principles of open governance, and because enquiries made through other channels have been unsuccessful.
I request a copy of the Maori Land Court, draft Retention and Disposal Appraisal Report, dated 7 August 2014, which was generated by the Law Society.
It was previously on your website, at this link: http://www.lawsociety.org.nz/__data/asse...
I have also tried this link to access it, without success:
The Law Society referred me to the Maori Land Court, who were unable to provide it, and to the email address 'officialcorrespondence [at] justice.govt.nz' which was rejected by the server domain.
It is ironic that the Law Society has apparently not kept a copy of a report regarding the retention and disposal of records.
I request a copy of the report please - if I'd known it would be deleted and that it would be this difficult to access I would have downloaded it myself.
What was the reason for deleting it from the website - the webpage is still there, but the report is not.
Thank you for your attention to this request.
