A couple of week’s ago Berlaymole noted the mysterious disappearance of the online poll about EU biofuels policy from the website of the European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.
The poll had asked respondents the following question:
Should the E.U. stick to its target to reach 10% biofuels by 2020?
The results of the poll have never been published and no explanation has been given as to why the poll has been removed. Fear not. We have reinstated the poll on this website, you’ll find it on the sidebar to the left.
Moreover, I’ve written to Barroso’s spokeswoman Leonor Ribeiro Da Silva under the terms of the Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to documents.
Under the terms of this Regulation, Ms Ribeiro Da Silva or one of her colleagues is legally obliged to acknowledge my request and to respond to my request within 15 working days. Failure to do so would constitute maladminstration on the part of the Commission.
Let’s wait and see what happens.
