What could changes to lobbying legislation mean to those who are lobbied?
Since coming into law, a large proportion of lobbyists have called for the Lobbying Act 2014 to be expanded beyond consultant lobbyists and to be more robust in its requirements. With the review of the legislation and of the Office of the Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists (ORCL) taking place, and a slew of stories of inappropriate lobbying behaviour – albeit not by lobbyists – has put a spotlight on the industry and makes it almost inevitable that things will change. That may suit the industry, but what about those who are on the receiving end of lobbying activity?
