TPA response to lobbying transparency consultation

April 11, 2012 10:57 AM

The Government’s consultation on its plans to establish a Statutory Register of Lobbyists closes on Friday 13th April and the TPA has now submitted its response, which you can read in full below.

To summarise, we support the Government’s plans as outlined in the Consultation Paper for a register of those lobbying on behalf of third parties: this means that there will be complete transparency when it comes to those companies or individuals who represent a variety of clients, but no unnecessary burden for those who engage in lobbying activities exclusively for a single organisation, all of whose meetings with ministers will still be declared on  a quarterly basis.
