Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to his Department’s latest Transparency Data release on ministerial meetings, April to June 2020, if he will (a) set out the criteria for deciding whether to meet with interested energy production companies or organisations and (b) publish copies of minutes and any other documents from each of the meetings listed.
Ministers meet with many different organisations, as set out in the transparency data release. There are a range of factors which influence whether a Minister meets with an organisation, including relevance to Government policy and ministerial availability. Minutes of ministerial meetings are not routinely published.
