Ben Fairless made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development did not have the information requested.

From: Ben Fairless

Delivered

Dear Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development,

Your auto-reply for the Christmas break this year says this:
If you have chosen to make an FOI request during this Christmas holiday
period, you are taken to also agree to provide the Department a 30 days
extension of time under s15AA of the FOI Act.

I would like all documents which relate to the decision to set this automatic reply.

I also want to make it clear that I do not consent to an extension of time by virtue of making the request. I consider that the above is inconsistent with the FOI act.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Fairless
