The G20

The Group of Twenty (G20) Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors was established in 1999 to bring together systemically important industrialised and developing economies to discuss key issues in the global economy.
The leaders of the G20 met in St Petersberg (Russia) on 5-6 September 2013 to discuss the world economy, particularly growth and jobs, as well as strengthening multilateral trade and international development assistance.

Further information on the G20 meeting can be found on the G20 website.

Oral statements

Oral statements are made after Question Time (or at 11am on a Friday) and after any Urgent Questions.

Statements normally relate to matters of policy or government actions. At the end of a statement, MPs can respond or question the government minister on its contents.
