Standard Chartered Bank and TTIP lobbying

The request was partially successful.

Dear Trade (TRADE),

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents (meeting agendas and minutes; emails and correspondence; consultation responses; and any others) which involve Standard Chartered Bank and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership – TTIP, since 13 April 2014. I would prefer you to produce the documents on a rolling basis, rather than waiting until the full response is ready, and I would be pleased to receive an initial list of all documents as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann
CEO
