The purpose of this contact is to advise that through an administrative
assignment error within police your request has not yet been auctioned.
Having been made aware of the request today, work has commenced to provide
As previously advised to you on 19 November 2012, each policy requested
will need to be examined to ascertain if it contains any material that
will be withheld. If any deletions are required from policies before they
are released, there may be a charge to you in accordance with the Ministry
of Justice charging guidelines. You will be advised of that estimated cost
and payment in part or whole may be required prior to that deleting
commencing. It may be that there is no cost to you, however it is not
possible to make that decision until the policies have been examined.
I apologise for the delay in responding to your initial request. A reply
will be provided as soon as possible.
