Special advisers may engage with Government colleagues on a wide range of issues from time to time, and act in accordance with the Code of Conduct for Special Advisers.

More broadly, I would note that all Departmental representatives involved in any discussions prior to the designation of the Airports National Policy Statement will have followed the propriety arrangements set out in Engaging with Stakeholders: Statement of Approach by Ministers and Officials dealing with the revised draft Airports National Policy Statement, which is published online:
