Better Capital notified the department of City Link’s imminent administration by telephone on 23 December 2014. Otherwise, no Ministers or officials have had meetings with individuals or groups representing City Link in the last 12 months.

As my Rt Hon Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has stated, he was in frequent contact with the Unions over the Christmas and New Year period to discuss developments and BIS officials have been in regular contact with City Link’s administrator.
