- minutes and other reports of these meetings;
all correspondence (i.e. any emails, correspondence or telephone call notes) between DG SANTE (including the Commissioner and the Cabinet) and Facebook or any intermediaries representing its interests.

Dear Ms Da Silva,


We refer to your email dated 25 April 2018 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 30 April 2018 under the above mentioned

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time
limit of 15 working days, which expires on 28 May 2018.

An extended time limit is needed as the documents you requested could be
