Dear Mr Teffer,
Parliament's Transparency Unit enquired about the agreement you seek access to. It established that the "preliminary political agreement" between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on the revised Audiovisual Media Services Directive, as mentioned in Parliament's press release of 26 April 2018 (http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/pr... is a political agreement which, so far, has not been translated into a Parliament document. Neither has Parliament received any such document.
In view of the foregoing, Parliament considers your request for access to documents as handled and hereby closes the file. Please do not hesitate to come back to us and submit a new application should you identify a specific document you would like to obtain access to.
