Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery.

In accordance with our principles of transparency and accountability, details of ministerial and permanent secretary meetings with external organisations on departmental business are published on a quarterly basis and are available at HMT ministers' meetings, hospitality, gifts and overseas travel - GOV.UK. It is not standard practice for minutes of ministerial meetings to be disclosed.
