§ John Barrett
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development (1) if he will list the meetings at which his Department has been represented on the delivery of sustainable development across Government as co-ordinated by the Ministerial Sub-committee of Green Ministers; 407W
(2) what meetings his Department's Green Minister has attended in the last 12 months in that role. 
Mr. Gareth Thomas
I am a Member of the Ministerial Sub-committee of Green Ministers (ENV(G)), but it has been established practice under successive Governments not to disclose information relating to the proceedings of Cabinet Committees. This practice is now formalised by Exemption 2 of Part II of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.
