Dear Grant Robertson,

My OIA request of 7 September regarding e-mail communications has not yet had a response, so is in breach of the statutory 20 day maximum time limit.

Can you please advise why no response has been sent, and when I will receive a response.

Yours faithfully,

David Farrar

Sent request to Grant Robertson again.

From: Hon Grant Robertson

Kia Ora,

Thank you for contacting Hon Grant Robertson, the Minister of Finance,
Minister for Sport and Recreation, Associate Minister for Arts, Culture
and Heritage and MP for Wellington Central. The Minister considers all
correspondence important and appreciates you taking the time to write.
Please note that as Minister Robertson receives a large amount of
correspondence it is not always possible to personally reply to all
emails.

The following guidelines apply:

* Invitations and requests to meet with the Minister will be processed
as soon as possible and a staff member will be in contact with you in
due course

* All media queries will be responded to by a staff member.

* Requests for official information will be managed in accordance with
the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982, which may include
transfer to a more relevant Minister or agency.

* If your email falls outside of the Minister’s portfolio
responsibilities, expresses a personal view, or is copied to multiple
Members of Parliament, then your opinion will be noted and your
correspondence may be transferred to another office, or there may be
no further response to you.

* If your correspondence is to the Minister as the Member of Parliament
for Wellington Central, this will be referred to his electorate
office.
