Dear Mr Fairless

 

Minister’s Office Freedom of Information Request No. 15/16-002

 

I refer to your correspondence received by the Minister for Social
Services (the Department) on 25 January 2016 in which you requested access
under the Commonwealth Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) to the
following documents:

 

“Can you please provide a copy of any complaints received in relation to
the decision to introduce "No Jab, No Pay" legislation?

 

I am happy to exclude duplicates of documents and personally identifiable
information.

 

Can this request be processed administratively? If not, please proceed as
a formal FOI request.”

 

Your request will be processed by the Minister’s Office in accordance with
the FOI Act.

 

Your request to the Department of Social Services (the Department),
received on the same date, and which sought documents in the same terms,
will be processed separately by the Department.

 

Should you have any queries about either matter, you may send queries via
