To ask the Prime Minister if he will list the people entertained on official business at Chequers since January 2002. [108031]

I have meetings with a wide range of organisations and individuals. As with previous administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such meetings under exemptions 2 and 7 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.My family and I have used Chequers in a variety of ways, both official and private, consistent with the wishes of the donor, Lord Lee, and the Chequers Estate Acts 1917 and 1958. The use of Chequers is governed by the Acts, and all meetings held at Chequers comply with the requirements of the Act.
