... I 'd be suspicious of the following error made by the Ministry of Social Development.
The Ministry now publishes OIA responses. I was browsing through the topics and initially ignored these two:

There is no way that the error is a mere typo. An extra letter has been added.
Then again, there is little point in trying to hide a release of documents that have been heavily redacted anyway.
Still, the matter leaves me curious ...
