OIA requests cost Callaghan Innovation $103k

From Morning Report, 7:41 am on 5 October 2018

The government research body, Callaghan Innovation, is defending itself against claims it doesn't treat all OIA requests equally. The Taxpayers' Union claims that the Callaghan Innovation deliberately de-prioritised its Offical Information requests - forcing them to submit queries under false names. The Union's director Jordan Williams told Morning Report that the information came a source within the Callaghan Innovation. Pete Hodgson is the chair of the Callaghan Innovation's board. He talks to Guyon Espiner.
