Case Note 12846 [1999] NZPrivCmr 2 – Mother complains about Department of Social Welfare’s refusal to identify source of abuse allegations

A woman asked for access to information held by the Department of Social Welfare after allegations were made about the treatment of her children. After receiving some information, she discovered that someone had made an allegation about her to her doctor. She complained to me after the Department withheld from her the identity of this person. However, I considered that the complaint did not have substance.
