SUBJECT: PASSENGER NAME RECORD DEMARCHE -- NETHERLANDS

REF: STATE 253041



1. Post delivered reftel demarche on Passenger Name
Record (PNR) data to Andre van Wiggen and Robert van Embden
of the MFA's Division of Transport (Personenverkeer) on
September 9. Van Embden says the Dutch are working on
answering our note, and he expects to have a "detailed"
response to ref demarche during the week of September 15.
Van Embden's office is leading a Dutch inter-agency process
which involves the Ministries of Transport and Interior, and
whose purposes are to study the implications of PNR and to
develop the Netherlands' position.



2. Van Embden predicted that the European Council of
Ministers transport committee will meet October 9 or 10 and
it is likely that PNR/privacy issues will be on the agenda.
