From: jxeeno

Delivered

Dear Department of Communications,

I wish to obtain emails and relevant attachments between Sarah Henderson MP and the Department of Communications detailing the expected rollout localities, premises and estimated build date around the Corangamite area.

These emails and or documents would have been sent around 2nd December 2014 prior to NBN Co's release of the 18 month rollout plan. It resulted in the following press release by Sarah Henderson MP:

http://sarahhenderson.com.au/2014/12/02/...

For reference, NBN Co has indicated that they did not provide this information to Sarah Henderson MP in QoN to Senate Estimates.

Yours faithfully,
jxeeno

Dear FOI,

In light of recent revelations that the former Minister for Communications had operated a non-departmental email server, are you able to confirm if emails received and transmitted from this email server were searched for this FOI request?

Yours sincerely,
