Lobbying Register Working Group

Since October 2016, the Lobbying Register Team has been meeting with stakeholders and interested parties to get their views in relation to the practicalities of operating the Register. Building on this work, a Working Group has been set up to help provide further information and assistance as the Act moves towards full implementation early next year.
