The Lobbying Register Team

The main aims of the Team are to:

  • Introduce an online lobbying register and supporting website.
  • Develop clear and easily interpretable policy, guidance and information on the operation of the register, for use by parliamentarians, senior officials and lobbyists.
  • Promote use of the new register to all internal and external stakeholders by effective use of personal contact, public information, campaigning and social media.
  • Maintain and monitor the new register appropriately, supporting all existing and new users of the register, once live.
  • Ensure compliance with all statutory duties related to the register.
