Greg Barker

Asked whether the Cabinet Secretary looked at Greg Barker’s relationship with an advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) after it was raised in the House of Commons, the PMS said that the issue had been looked at by the Cabinet Secretary and the Permanent Secretary of DECC. It was raised about a year ago, including in the House of Commons. It was also looked at again in the context of the Freedom of the Information request and the Government’s response to that.

Asked whether the Cabinet Secretary looked at the relationship after fresh issues were discovered with regard to an advisor’s contract extension and meetings with her clients, the PMS said that the contract was agreed by civil servants and the correct process was followed. The advisor’s clients were also known to DECC. The Energy Minister had met with companies involved in clean energy, as would be expected.
