All meetings that the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland undertakes as part of his ministerial responsibilities can be found in transparency reports.

The exact number of meeting requests granted and yet to receive a reply are not centrally collated and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. The Northern Ireland Office processes all ministerial meeting requests in accordance with Cabinet Office guidance.
