To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the oral contribution of the Hon. Member for Burton of 13 March 2018 whether he plans to publish the notes of his meeting on the Prompt Payment Code.
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.
