My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I have had introductory meetings on a range of matters concerning our new portfolios which includes nuclear. As such briefs and presentations provide advice and information to Ministers, the Department will not be publishing them.
Last year’s consultation on the future of nuclear power in the UK was a full and transparent consultation, lasting 20 weeks. We published a comprehensive consultation document, had a dedicated website, ran press advertising, held stakeholder events and commissioned Opinion Leader to run deliberative events with the public.
The decision by the Market Research Standards Board referred to Opinion Leader’s conduct in relation to the deliberative events, one part of our consultation. I have published on our website the response the Department issued on this matter.
