Volume 711: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether discussions took place between the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Myners, Baroness Vadera, their offices or their officials, and Sir Victor Blank relating to the takeover of HBOS by Lloyds TSB; and, if so, when the first contacts between each of the Ministers concerned or their officials and Sir Victor took place. [HL3843]

Government Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations and individuals 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.
