answer text <p>Details of meetings with ETS representatives is not held centrally. Home Office Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of international partners, as well as organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors, as part of the process of policy development and delivery. Details of Ministerial meetings are passed to the Cabinet Office on a quarterly basis and are subsequently published on the Gov.uk website:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/home-office-ministers-hospitality-data#history" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/home-office-ministers-hospitality-data#history </a></p><p><br>I can, however, confirm that officials met with representatives from ETS Global BV in 2017 to discuss settlement of the legal action the Department had brought against the company. More recently discussions with ETS have focused on the ongoing criminal trials of those believed to have helped organise and facilitate fraudulent activity.</p>
