The Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Group is a small group of business leaders from sectors of strategic importance to the UK that provides regular, high-level advice to the Prime Minister.
1. Terms of reference
The group will meet quarterly to provide high level advice to the Prime Minister and senior ministers on critical business and economic issues facing the UK.
The group will provide a forum to debate the concerns and priorities facing the economy in general, and strategically important sectors in particular. To facilitate an open and fruitful dialogue, discussions will be informal and participants will be understood and expected to give their views on a personal rather than a corporate basis.
1.2 Meetings and attendance
Meetings will be chaired by the Prime Minister, and the group will meet quarterly. The Chancellor and Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills will also attend meetings of the group. As membership is personal, it will not be possible for substitutes to attend.
Members will be invited to contribute suggestions for the agenda for each meeting. The group will be supported by a small secretariat drawn from the Department for Business and HM Treasury.
Membership will be offered on a personal basis. Members will not be remunerated.
