Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting a list of all lobby meetings held with the tobacco industry on the subject of the Single-Use Plastics proposal since 28 May 2018, to include the name of the official(s), the name(s) of the lobbyist(s) and organisation(s), the date, and the precise topic. I would additionally like to receive any emails, letters, agendas, minutes, and position papers which relate to either these meetings or other contacts between the tobacco industry and DG Environment on the Single-Use Plastics proposal.
May I take this opportunity to remind the Commission that the European Ombudsman has previously criticised as maladministration the Commission’s refusal to ensure that there is proactive transparency across the institution regarding its interactions with the tobacco lobby, including publishing details of all meetings with the tobacco industry, including the minutes.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Rue d'Edimbourg 26
