My Rt Hon. Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade did not meet the Chief Scientific Adviser between 1 June and 31 August 2019.

However, the Chief Scientific Adviser is closely involved in policy development and meets regularly with the Permanent Secretary, members of the Department for International Trade’s (DIT) Executive Committee and many other senior officials more broadly both within DIT and across Government.
