Downing Street has denied that the Prime Minister's decision to attend a private meeting of the secretive Bilderberg Group today ran counter to his promise to lead the most transparent government ever. A spokesman said:
The Prime Minister has always been clear about the importance of transparency, which is why this Government has taken a number of steps in terms of publishing more data, more information and making details of meetings available.
We publish far more information on meetings than previous governments.
The Prime Minister regularly has meetings with key ministers from other countries and with business people and others as part of his job. That doesn't mean that he is not determined to lead the most transparent government.
