Delivered

Dear Department of Finance,

If possible, please treat this as an administrative or informal request.

Otherwise, please consider this a request under the FOI Act.

Can you please provide the topics list for briefs created in preparation for hearings of Senate 2016-2017 Supplementary Budget Estimates.

I ask that all fees in relation to this request be waived because the release of the documents is in the public interest. The documents help identify the most important policy areas within the department's responsibilities.

Yours faithfully,

Jackson Gothe-Snape
