We listen to the views of all stakeholders. As well as replying to correspondence from civil society on this matter, the Minister listened to views during a conference call with representatives from the Publish What You Pay coalition this week.

Officials met civil society representatives on four occasions to hear views on industry guidance and considered a number of written representations, including a copy of the Publish What You Pay response to the public consultation exercise undertaken by industry associations.
