Fatcats pay £2,500 each to spend day with 26 Tory ministers including David Cameron

The secretive meeting with business chiefs – whose identities are being kept under wraps – has enraged anti-lobbying campaigners

Mingling with fatcats: George Osborne and David Cameron will speak at the £2,500 event

Fatcats are paying £2,500 each to spend the day with 26 Tory ministers including David Cameron and George Osborne.

The secretive meeting has enraged anti-lobbying campaigners after it emerged it’ll be held at this year’s Conservative Party conference in Manchester.

Business chiefs will have three hours to meet ministers who spend millions in their field – including defence, housing, digital technology and council equipment.

But the identities of guests at the all-day event, which includes dinner, networking and speeches by the PM and Chancellor, are being kept a secret.

And because it’s a political event all discussions will be private between ministers and the rich lobbyists who choose to go.
