We have no records of any official departmental meetings between Ministers, special advisers and the named individuals. Ministers will have met some of these individuals in their personal capacities at social and party political gatherings, but the Department does not hold records of such meetings.
We are not aware of any officials meeting any of the named individuals. This information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
