The remarkable thing with this response is that David Parker as Minister for the Environment did not transfer the request to David Parker in any of his other ministerial roles or to any of the Associate Ministers for the Environment. Instead he just said (I think) that I need to repeat the information request re weekly briefings myself to David Parker in each of his other ministerial roles and to each of the Associate Ministers for the Environment.
