Dear NBN Co Limited,

This request is for a copy of the emails which are now hidden, and any attachments to those emails.

Dear Ben

Thank you for your email.

Would you mind giving me a call when convenient to discuss the scope of your request - I am unclear as to what you mean by "any documents...". Alternatively, if you would prefer, fell free to let me know when would be a good time to call you.

The legislative time frames for completing this FOI request will not commence until such time as the scope is sufficiently clear.

Kind regards

Hi Ben

Our records show that the decision is due on the 10th of November, due to the need for us to consult with third parties (see letter attached which outlines due dates).

That said, I am fairly confident we will be in a position to issue a decision on this matter in the next few weeks as our deliberations and consultations are fairly advanced.

Do please give me a call if you have any questions.

Kind regards

Yvette
