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:

- a list of lobby meetings held by DG Communication with Facebook or its intermediaries. The list should include: date, individuals attending + organisational affiliation, the issues discussed.
- minutes and other reports of these meetings;
all correspondence (i.e. any emails, correspondence or telephone call notes) between DG Communication (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Facebook or any intermediaries representing its interests.

Yours faithfully,
Margarida da Silva
