From: Anne Rowlands

Delivered

Dear Department of Finance,

I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI Act).

Please release:

Any and all information and non-personal correspondence relating to the waiver of debt for Robert John Day from his term as Senator when he was not properly elected.

Notice can be provided in PDF or over simple electronic document form.

I ask that all fees in relation to this request be waived because the release of the documents is in the public interest, especially as at current many debts owed to the Commonwealth are currently owed by my fellow citizens under the DHS robot debt scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Anne Rowlands

Good afternoon Ms Rowlands,

 

Freedom of Information Request – FOI 17/80

Thank you for your email to the Department of Finance (Finance) requesting
access to the following under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI
Act).

 

Any and all information and non-personal correspondence relating to the
waiver of debt for Robert John Day from his term as Senator when he was
not properly elected. 

 

The scope of parts of your request are unclear. Under paragraph 15(2)(b)
of the FOI Act, an FOI request must provide sufficient information as is
reasonably necessary to enable a responsible officer of the agency to
identify the documents being sought. It is unclear specifically what
information you are seeking in relation to Mr Day’s waiver of debt. It is
also unclear what you mean by non-personal correspondence.

 

Way Forward

We note that a similar FOI request has recently been made using the Right
to Know website, link available here:
[1]https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/d....
It appears that the subject matter of the documents that you are seeking
are substantially the same and are likely to satisfy your request relating
to the application for waiver of debt. On that basis, please confirm that
you are happy to withdraw your FOI request. Alternatively, please revise
your request by identifying the specific documents that you wish to
access.

 

If you have any questions, my preference is to discuss by telephone.
Please do not hesitate contact the FOI Team on the details below.

 

Kind regards,

FOI Officer

Dear FOI Officer,

Regarding the request made my Mark Newton at : https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/d...

This request is materialistically the same as mine and likely to produce a similar result in the answer to the question I have put in my request. However, I do note that a full response is still pending for this request and ask that the answer is provided as soon as practicable.

Thanks so much for responding to my request.

Yours sincerely,

Anne Rowlands
