To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what meetings were held between Lord Myners and representatives of the Royal Bank of Scotland between 6 and 12 October 2008 inclusive; which officials of his Department took part in each meeting; and if he will place on his Departmental website agendas and minutes of each meeting.

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the remarks made in the other place by the Financial Services Secretary to the Treasury (Lord Myners) in response to Lord Smith and Lord Howard on 2 March, Official Report, House of Lords, columns 585-86.

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. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government’s practice to provide details of all such meetings.
