Dear Secretariat General,
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 the Secretariat General, 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.
I look forward to hearing from you.
