Written answers (Question to Finance)

As the Deputy will be aware, I meet with a wide range of public and private representative bodies and companies from time to time, to discuss relevant developments and matters of interest. This engagement with stakeholders is a legitimate and important part of the development of public policy.

The particular meetings to which the Deputy refers, that I and officials in my Department attended, included developments in EU and international tax, in particular the digital tax agenda and the recovery of the alleged state aid.
