The Department does not release information from meetings which may be sensitive to policy development. As announced at Spring Statement, the Department will launch a call for evidence on how to eliminate unfair payment practices to small businesses. Stakeholder views from meetings surrounding late payment, such as the Prompt Payment Code, will feed in to this policy development.
