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 was set up to help provide further information and assistance as the Act moved towards full implementation. The Group concluded its work in December 2017.
