Responses to Official Information Act requests

The Ministry makes Official Information Act (OIA) responses available where the information is considered to be of public interest, and where there is no risk to the privacy of individuals. The names and contact details of requestors are removed before publication.

To find out more about making an OIA request, visit OIA requests, where you can make a request via the online tool. Alternatively you can email the OIA Services team.
