s31(a) OIA Statistics
The request was partially successful.
From: Joshua Grainger
Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,
I would like to request under the Official Information Act the number of times the Prime Minister has prevented disclosure of information under s31(a) of the Official Information Act. If statistics on this are readily available, can I please have all available records on this going back to the commencement of the Act broken up by year?
If statistics are not readily available can I please have records covering either the last 15 requests, or the last year, whichever is greater?
I would also like to request the details of the last 3 requests withheld under s31(a) of what exactly was requested, and the reason certified by the Prime Minister for the withholding of information.
Thank you, and feel free to contact me if you want my request clarified.
