Ministers hold regular meetings with industry to discuss a range of energy and climate change issues. In addition, my officials hold regular discussions on specific issues relating to the development of carbon capture and storage. Officials from the Office of Carbon Capture and Storage met with representatives of a number of CCS project developers recently, including SSE, to discuss the development of the UK CCS Programme and will be holding an Industry Day on 16 December to provide further information on the selection process. We will not be making decisions about which projects to take forward before this process has been completed.
