Lobbying Register Guidance

As of 7 September we have made our draft Parliamentary Guidance document available to stakeholders. This has been produced to assist with stakeholder preparations for the implementation of the Lobbying (Scotland) Act 2016.

We have undertaken an extensive range of engagements, meeting with representatives from nearly 200 organisations and representative bodies from various sectors. This essential feedback has been very welcome and helpful in the development of draft Parliamentary Guidance.

This input helped to underpin the work of the Lobbying Register Working Group, which had been focussing on developing guidance since Spring 2017.
