I have on-going engagement with officials in my Department. My diary records 24 formally scheduled meetings since my appointment. However, in the normal course of my work as a Minister of State, officials provide briefing material before many of my engagements, including stakeholder engagements and parliamentary appearances. These briefings typically include a discussion with officials, who often attend those engagements. In addition informal meetings and discussions happen on a daily basis.

I must advise the Deputy that there continue to be IT access issues arising from the cyber security incident and therefore it has not been possible to conduct a definitive search of all possible sources of information at this time.
