In line with the practice of successive administrations, details of Ministerial discussions are not routinely disclosed. Defra Ministers and officials regularly meet with their counterparts in the Department for Transport and the Department of Health to discuss a range of issues of mutual interest, including Government plans to improve air quality. The Clean Growth Inter-Ministerial Group also meets regularly and helps to coordinate and drive forward Government policy on air quality.
