Dear FOI Officer,

Dear FOI,

A response to my request is now about a month overdue. What's going on?

Yours sincerely,

Henare Degan

Dear FOI,

Happy 2015!

The new year is often a time of renewal and rejuvenation so I thought I'd take the time to see if these feelings had spread to your office. Maybe it's time to dust off my poor five month old FOI request and have shot at replying?

Yours sincerely,

Henare Degan
