Dear Mr Watson,
Thank you for your request of 30 March asking for the following:
“[…] list the date and purpose of all meetings between ministers in your department and representatives of the company NDS since 11 May 2010.”
I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
I am able to release the information you requested.
Information is held for one Ministerial meeting with NDS since 11 May 2010. Ed Vaizey visited NDS’s head offices in Jerusalem on Monday 5 March 2012 along with a delegation of leading UK media and broadcasting companies, as part of a 2 day programme (3 days for the delegation) which sought to explore the potential for collaboration with Israeli new media companies.
