This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment,

I submitted a request 3 months ago and was assured a response would be submitted within 3 working days. So far nothing.

You could at least confirm you received my request for details on how much funding is provided to the University of Tasmania by the salmon industry.

A simple question I would have thought. If you cannot assist, please direct me to the relevant source

Yours faithfully, Hugh McLean Ph 0437278222

Note 1: Mostly I classify a response like this one to say "clarification requested" because the agency has told the applicant that some more information (or money!) is needed before the request will be processed. With this request, I have put the response in the category of "refused" because it is some time since the agency responded and the applicant does not appear to have made a follow-up. It is possible that a follow-up has been made by the ordinary post or by private email but Right to Know has not heard anything about this. Even if the applicant did not follow-up agency questions, it does not mean that the agency will refuse the request when an application is made in the correct (required) manner.

Note 2: Although an application under the Freedom of Information Act 1983 of the Commonwealth of Australia does not require an application fee, this is not the case with applications in the states and territories of Australia. Then an applicant must usually pay a fee, or the request is not valid. Also, the Commonwealth agencies might demand payment of a fee to cover extra processing costs. If the fee is not paid, the request will not be processed.
