star this property answer text <p>Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors, including banks and other financial institutions, as part of the process of policy development and delivery. Details of ministerial and permanent secretary meetings with external organisations on departmental business are published on a quarterly basis and are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel</a>.</p>Interest rates on savings accounts are set by the institution providing the account. As this is a commercial decision, the Government does not seek to intervene. If a customer is not content with the interest rate they receive, Government encourages them to shop around to find the best savings account for their needs.<p> </p> more like this
