Dear European External Action Service,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Correspondence between the EU and Switzerland regarding the "Begrenzungsinitiative" ("limitation initiative") of the Swiss party SVP. On September 27th Switzerland will vote on the initiative, which wants the termination of the free movement agreement with the EU.

Yours faithfully,

Fabian Eberhard
