holding answer 2 July 2012

Since May 2010, the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport, my right hon. Friend Mr Hunt, has had no formal meetings with the Department's Science and Research Advisory Committee (SRAC), but he has met with Dr Michael Dixon, the Chair of the Department's SRAC, on a number of occasions. Much of the scientific input from SRAC is, of course, expected to flow into the Department through meetings and technical briefings for officials rather than Ministers.
