To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, whether the designate appointees to senior officer roles at the Trade Remedies Authority have met with external stakeholders; and whether his Department's policy is to publish details of such meetings.

The designate appointees are DIT employees and are included in DIT transparency returns.

The Department complies with standard Cabinet Office transparency rules, as is usual. The designate appointees started their roles this calendar year and therefore the returns have not yet been published, but when they are, the relevant transparency data can be found on GOV.UK - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications?departments%5B%5D=department-for-international-trade&publication_type=transparency-data.

When the Trade Remedies Authority becomes a separate legal entity to DIT, subject to the will of Parliament, it will have its own transparency systems and rules.
