Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

I would like to receive a list of all lobby meetings with industry held by officials and ministers working on the EU proposal to classify titanium dioxide as a suspected carcinogen, in the past year.

Yours faithfully,

Vicky Cann

Dear [email address] on behalf of [email address],

Thank you for the reply dated 2 August.

I note that DEFRA's letter to me says:
"Defra holds quarterly open meetings of the UKCSF with public records including
attendance lists: https://www.gov.uk/government/groups/uk-...
meetings
Records show that titanium dioxide was raised by a stakeholder at the following
meeting: 18 July 2017."

However, the link to the meeting in question does not include either minutes or an agenda for the 18 July 2018 meeting. Might you supply those please?

Yours sincerely,

Vicky Cann

Dear [email address] on behalf of [email address],

Please ignore the previous message. I now see that I have mixed up the meetings on 18 July 2017 and 18 July 2018.
Thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Vicky Cann
