More cognitive dissonance from the PM's office about mining

I posted a couple of days ago about emailing the Prime Minister John Key to express my disapproval of more mining in conservation areas. Yesterday, I received this email from the PM's private secretary.
From: "Briane Smith (MIN)"

On behalf of the Prime Minister, Hon John Key, I acknowledge your email concerning potential changes to Schedule 4 of the Crown Minerals Act.
As the issue you have raised falls within the portfolio responsibilities of the Minister of Education, I have forwarded your email on to the office of Hon Anne Tolley for her consideration.
Briane Smith Private Secretary, Office of the Prime Minister
Please consider the environment before printing this e-mail

What else can you say but WTF? Since when is mining in conservation areas or Schedule 4 of the Crown Minerals Act anything to do with the Education portfolio or the hon Anne Tolley?
