The below Parliamentary question was asked by David Amess on 2014-06-27.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what his policy is on the taking of minutes in meetings conducted by his departmental officials with representatives of (a) other Government departments and (b) outside organisations; and if he will make a statement.
Dr Daniel Poulter
Where meetings of formally constituted committees or boards are held, a minute of the meeting must be produced for governance purposes. For other less formal meetings, a note or minute is produced at the discretion of the officials concerned.
