Treasury Ministers and officials receive representations from a variety of organisations in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with the previous Administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such meetings and discussions. Details of meetings between Treasury Ministers and external organisations are published quarterly on the HMT website.
