Conservative party leaders, including Chancellor George Osborne, were meeting with Google every three weeks in the run-up to its ‘sweetheart’ deal with the Treasury, the Mirror reported in January 2016.

The details come to light as pressure mounts for an investigate into a deal struck between Google and HMRC that sees them paying the equivalent of just 3% in corporation tax on their vast profits in the ten years from 2005.
The Mirror adds that "there is no suggestion any rules were broken, and it is understood the meetings covered a broad range of topics."
