    diplomatic jargon

    Is it possible to use the phrase "wash up" in the same sense as "wrap up" esp. in diplomatic langauge - "possibility for a joint wash up"?
    Thank you in advance

    It is used:
    The Agency has already begun an internal ‘lessons learned’ exercise and we will be working with Defra on a joint wash-up exercise which will include inter-departmental communications.
