Dear Prime Minister's Office,
The BBC today published a news article saying "Downing Street said the government had "worked closely with Apple and Google". It also quoted Matt Hancock as saying "We've agreed to join forces with Google and Apple, to bring the best bits of both systems together"
Please kindly provide records to show you 'worked closely' with Apple and Google between March 2020 and the present in respect of creating a contact-tracing app. Apple have stated you haven't spoken with them about any of these things so we're keen to see your evidence.
1 Minutes of meetings Number Ten had with Apple and Google.
2 Records of emails Number Ten sent to and received from Apple and Google
3 Copies of letters Number Ten sent to Apple and Google
If you don't hold them then please let us know who does.
