Dear Health and Food Safety,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I would like to request a list of all lobby meetings held by DG Sante, since 17 April 2019, where the proposed ban on food additive E171 by the French Government was discussed. The list should include the names of the individuals and organisations attending; the date; and any agendas / minutes / notes produced. I would additionally like to receive any third party position papers, emails, or other correspondence which relates to discussions around the French Government's ban on E171.

This request should include all meetings of SCOPAFF.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Vicky Cann

Dear Health and Food Safety,

Thank you very much for the reply to 2019/4312.

Document 16 mentioned letters that had also been sent on 26 October 2018 and 1 February 2019; would it be possible to also receive those?

Additionally, document 18 referred to a telephone conversation in the previous week. Are there any notes relating to that call?

Can you confirm that no further meetings have been held on the matter of E171, other than those covered by the 27 documents?

Finally, I will separately contact you about document 23.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
