Cost of asset sales bonus scheme

Alex Harris made this Official Information request to Prime Minister

The request was refused by Prime Minister.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Hon John Key,

On 24 July 2012, the Prime Minister claimed that his proposed asset sales bonus scheme would cost between $60 and $80 million ("$60m - $80m price for asset sale bonus scheme", Stuff, 24/7/12). I would like to request the following information under the Official Information Act 1982:

* all advice on the costings referred to above. I'm particularly interested in where they originated (e.g. Treasury or the Prime Minister's office), when the work was done (before or after the National Party conferance), and of course the advice itself.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the website.

With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
