Draft Report Consultation

The Committee is very grateful to all those who have so far contributed to its review of the Lobbying Act. As noted above, the Act has one further step, which is a requirement for the Committee to publish its draft report on its review and to consult with “such persons as it considers appropriate” on the draft report and any recommendations that it proposes to include in its final report.

Find the draft report, as well information about the Committee's work on the review to date, here.

The Committee is consulting those organisations which gave oral evidence to the Committee at its meeting on 5 November. However, the Committee is also happy to hear views from anyone else who would like contribute.
