TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting.The chairman of the House of Commons’ Treasury committee said the meeting may be an opportunity for the government to change course.

VERBATIM: The meeting was significant because it was the government’s failure to publish the OBR’s analysis of its tax-cutting plans that worried investors.
