To ask Her Majesty's Government what was the administrative error that caused a week’s worth of meetings with companies seeking COVID-19 contracts to be excluded from Lord Bethell’s transparency returns; why this administrative error occurred; when the failure to include these meetings was discovered; and who informed the Department of Health and Social Care that the meetings had not been included.

These meetings were included in the relevant transparency return. However, the omission was caused by a formatting error during the merger of individual returns into a master document. This has now been corrected with the full list of meetings now available.
