Dear Department of the Treasury,
I would like to know, the amount of money the Australian government spent on pencils, in 2017.
Dear Mr Smith
I refer to your email below.
The Department of the Treasury does not have information on the amount of money spent on pencils by the Australian Government in 2017 (or any other year).
We have not treated your email as an FOI request as it did not identify or refer to documents. If you changed your request to seek access to documents that contain the information you are requesting, we would still be unable to assist you, for the same reason.
