While in the UK the Guardian reported:

"Her [Theresa May's] reluctance to discuss her leading role on the European stage was evident again last Thursday when she met other interior ministers in Paris at a G6 meeting to discuss wider data sharing within Europe on internal flights to tackle the problem of jihadi fighters.

"While her French and German counterparts were only too willing to discuss the meeting, it was left to her department's permanent secretary, Mark Sedwill, to disclose at an obscure Commons committee that Britain had warned Germany that it would not allow its planes to land in Britain unless it watered down its data protection laws to allow passenger lists to be handed over in advance."

The G6 meetings are comprised of Interior Minsters from: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, UK and the USA always attends.
