Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

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:

All documentation (including but not limited to all email correspondence, attendance lists, agendas, background papers, transcripts, recordings and minutes/notes) relating to the meetings listed below:

1. Between CEMBUREAU and Joan Canton, Cabinet member of Thierry Breton on the 28th September 2021

2. Between CEMBUREAU and Cabinet members of Thierry Breton on the 24th March 2021

3. Between CEMBUREAU and Cabinet members of Thierry Breton on the 20th April 2020

4. Between CEMBUREAU and Alienor Margerit, Cabinet member of Paolo Gentiloni on the 8th December 2020.

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,

Venetia Roxburgh

Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 6 December 2021. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 7 December 2021 and split between DG GROW under reference number
GESTDEM 2021/7851 and DG ECFIN  under reference number GESTDEM 2021/7852.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

 

The time limit for both requests will expire on 6 January 2022. In case
this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union.

Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission.

For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s
privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

 

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

 

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page
[1]Privacy statement - access to documents.

 

Yours faithfully,

According to our standard operational procedure, the reply would normally
