UNCLASSIFIED

Dear Ms Gibbs,

Transfer of freedom of information request to another agency

 

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act) for access to documents relating to the amount of medical marijuana
grown for medical trials. Specifically, you sought access to:

“a document identifying the amount of medical marijuana being grown in
Australia for use in medical trials from January 2015 to present”

 

I am writing to tell you that I have transferred the entirety of your
request to the Department of Health. Under section 16(1) of the FOI Act, I
am able to transfer a request if the requested document is not in my
possession but in the possession of another agency or if the subject
matter of the document is more closely connected with the functions of
another agency.

Accordingly, on 6 April 2016 I transferred your request to the Department
of Health, whose functions are more closely connected to the subject
area. 

We received your request on 31 March 2016 and the 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after that date.  The
Department of Health will treat your request as though it received it the
same day that we did.  You should therefore expect a decision from the
Department of Health by the next business day after Sunday 1 May 2016. 
The period of 30 days may be extended if the Department of Health needs to
consult third parties or for other reasons.  They will advise you if this
happens.

The FOI team at the Department of Health can be contacted by email at
[1][email address] or by phone at (02) 6289 1666.

Yours sincerely,

Siobhan | FOI Case Manager
