    It is ridiculous that the Ministry of Health are claiming that “privacy” stops them from saying what cluster is involved. I have asked if I was in that cluster and I have claimed urgency under the Official Information Act because I think I should be able to find out.

    The rules around ‘privacy’ are conveniently mis-understood across the public service. ‘Privacy’ is often used as a convenient excuse, rarely challenged by journalists, for parliamentarians and public servants to hide behind or to do nothing. It takes real effort and understanding of the system they are responsible for to know how the Privacy Act actually works – something, I’ve learnt from bitter experience, is severely lacking across most of the public service senior management.
