Dear FOIUnit,

Please advise the following.

Under 12(1)(c) it does not stipulate a 'physical' address is required to be provided. A 'virtual' address could therefore be appropriate, and the virtual address I am providing is the one accessed through this website.

What does the $30 application fee cover, and how does charging this fee align with the stated Objects of the Act? I request that this fee be waived.

Yours sincerely,

Sean

FOIUnit, WA Department of the Premier and Cabinet
