Dear President,

At the 1025th meeting of the Ministers’ Deputies (30 April, 2 and 5 May 2008, item 4.3), the Committee of Ministers decided to invite the Parliamentary Assembly to give an opinion on the draft Council of Europe convention on access to official documents, contained in Document CM(2008)56 Addendum 1. I enclose a copy of the draft convention and of its explanatory report.

If the Assembly were able to give its opinion by October 2008, it would greatly assist the Committee of Ministers in the early finalisation of this important text.
