Details of the Request

"“Please provide the various drafts of the Consultation paper “Ministry for the Environment. 2018. Our Climate Your Say: Consultation on the Zero Carbon Bill. Wellington: Ministry for the Environment.”

In addition I would like to know where the initial draft came from, any instructions to the Chief Executive, officials or draftspersons and discussions, notes of meetings and correspondence with external (to the department) parties (including other officials) in regards to its content. I am particularly interested to see information that rationalises the somewhat alarmist claims that have already been subject to the OIA (summarised below) and the information contained in an earlier document published by MfE known as: “Our atmosphere and climate 2017 DATA TO 2016” (attached) that is somewhat more measured in its analysis (see attached synthesis).”"
