Okay, +1 on this. Benjamin, what are your plans re. getting copies of
a letter to Ministers? I guess we learned with the MEPs that a paper
letter works better than anything and in this case of asking questions
one has an external record of 'receipt'. Does this mean sending a
letter to each national ministry or do they also all have mailboxes in
Brussels for their behaviour as the Council?
