Dear Department of Human Services,

I write to request under the Freedom of Information Act the following documents:

[1] Emails from Centrelink staff to Fairfax Media journalists which contain the personal information of Andie Fox with the personal information redacted and any preceding emails or emails in reply;
[2] The document containing the approval under section 208 of the Social Security (Administration) Act 1999 to release information about Andie Fox to the media.
[3] Internal emails within the Department discussing the release of personal information about Andie Fox to the media;

Yours faithfully,

Hi UD,

This request would normally be hidden because it's a request for information, but that could be avoided if you excluded the actual personal information of the individual in question.

Dear Department of Human Services,

For clarification I do not want to request any personal information of a Centrelink client.

Yours faithfully,

UD
