This question was answered on 11th June 2020

Starting the week commencing 8th June, my Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will chair the first meetings of new business-led ‘recovery roundtables’.

The Department is engaging with a diversity of stakeholders to ensure we elicit the broadest possible range of views on the UK’s economic recovery and continues to engage extensively with Trade unions on its response to Covid-19. I continue to hold weekly meetings with the Trade Unions where they are able to feed into the recovery roundtable process and a dedicated meeting to discuss economic recovery is being organised. Stakeholders can also send written contributions by 17th of June, a process which is open to everyone including the Trade Unions.
