Nothing to hide

I have nothing to hide. It is for this reason that from my first day in the European Parliament we took note of every single meeting I had with lobby groups, non-governmental organisations, industry and interested individuals. My office is open to anyone willing to discuss and contribute to our work at the European Parliament, yet this must be done in a transparent manner. I am proud to have always been on the side of a mandatory Transparency Register for all politicians…here is my open book of meetings.
