26th June 2001 Letter from Attorney General Rod Welford, in reply to my letter of 22nd May 2001. He again declines to do anything to further inform any agency or the public. He claims that it is sufficient that youth can contact a few existing legal centres (which may or may not have access to correct information) and one unofficial website (with recently corrected information).

Dear Mr Frame

Further to my earlier correspondence to you, I have now been advised that the Attorney-General Hon Rod Welford NP has written to you personally regarding this matter.

I trust that the Ministers response clarifies the Governments position on this issue.

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.

Yours sincerely
