Dear Secretariat General,

Thank you for your response and providing me with overall expenditure of both commissions for the use of 'air taxis'.

However I would like you to please review the decision not to provide me with a breakdown of the spending, in particular the Juncker commission.

If you can provide overall figures, it stands to reason that you have a breakdown. I fully accept that this might not be to the level I originally asked for, but it must be accessible in some format.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Harris
