Dear Ministerials,

Dear Ms Fraser,

Thank you for your letter (your ref 19 – D – 0045).

You have asked for clarification in relation to our requests for information 3-5.

I confirm that we are seeking formal advice which would have been presented to and/or considered by the Minister, contained in briefing papers (together with any supporting documents referenced in those briefing papers). Our request relates to information supplied to and/or considered by the Minister for Climate Change and the Minister for the Environment.

Apart from the points above, we agree with your rephrasing of requests 3 and 5. In relation to question 4, we rephrase it as follows:

“Advice to the Minister for Climate Change and Minister for the Environment on how failure to address the adverse effects of climate change may specifically impact Maori and how measures to address climate change may specifically impact Maori”.

Yours sincerely,

Tania Te Whenua

Dear Tania

 

Thank you for your email below and the clarification of your request, to
the following:

 

I confirm that we are seeking formal advice which would have been
presented to and/or considered by the Minister, contained in briefing
papers (together with any supporting documents referenced in those
briefing papers). Our request relates to information supplied to and/or
considered by the Minister for Climate Change and the Minister for the
Environment.

 

·         Advice to the Minister for Climate Change and the Minister for
the Environment on the range of options considered by the Government to
address greenhouse gas emissions.

·         Advice to the Minister for Climate Change and Minister for the
Environment on how failure to address the adverse effects of climate
change may specifically impact Māori and how measures to address climate
change may specifically impact Māori.

·         Engagement with Māori conducted by the Ministry and/or Minister
on the Zero Carbon Bill and New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS)
review consultation between April 2018 and March 2019, including
engagement plans and hui minutes.

 

I wish to advise that we have transferred your request in full to Hon
James Shaw, Minister for Climate Change. This is because the information
to which your request relates more closely connected with the functions of
the Minister. In these circumstances, we are required by section 14 of the
OIA to transfer your request.

 

You will receive a reply to your request directly from the Ministers’
office in due course.

 

Yours sincerely
