Dear Prime Minister,
I write to request access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982.
I seek access to the Prime Minister’s Question Time briefs for the Prime Minister’s participation in Question Time on 27 July – 4 August 2022.
This request includes the documents in the red and white folders taken by the PM into the chamber for QT.
For the avoidance of doubt, I am seeking access to documents held by the Prime Minister and his Office broader than those documents which would be held by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and includes any documents created or amended by the Prime Minister’s office for Question time as well as documents containing annotations or highlighting by the Prime Minister or his staff.
The purpose of this email is to acknowledge the request you made to the
Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for access under the Freedom of Information
Act 1982 (the Act).
The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) provides
administrative support to the PMO for the processing of their Freedom of
Information (FOI) requests. We have forwarded your request to the PMO for
consideration. When corresponding with PM&C about this request please
include the reference number of PM/2022/005.
Your request was received on 5 August 2022. The 30 day statutory period
for processing your request commenced from the day after it was received,
you should therefore expect a decision by 5 September 2022.
The processing period of 30 days may be extended in certain circumstances
and we will write to you separately regarding any extension of time.
