Dear European Parliament,

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:

On 4 January, the Guardian reported that the European Parliament spent nearly €690,000 on office renovations.

It said MEP Rainer Wieland pent €486,011 on a state-of-the-art office and €134,774 “showroom” next door, both built from scratch on the 15th floor of the European parliament in Brussels. It also noted a possible €49,864 for a mobile studio.

See here:

I am seeking all information, documents (including a break down of costs) related to the expenditures of this "showroom" as well as the "mobile studio."

I am also seeking all information to nearly €690,000 spent on office renovations.

Yours faithfully,

Nikolaj Nielsen
