I have had a number of official engagements since 4 May, including meetings with my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, other members of Cabinet and a range of Government officials, as is usual in the discharge of my official duties. I have also been present in the House for a range of Government business.

In addition, I have been on an official visit to Finland in preparation for their forthcoming presidency of the European Union, where I met the Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and Minister of Trade and Industry amongst other dignitaries.

On behalf of my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, I have chaired a meeting of the British Irish Council and very recently been on an official visit to Canada and the U.S.
