PRCA poll finds scepticism from lobbyists over bill's effect on transparency

A poll of lobbyists has revealed that only four per cent believe the Government’s lobbying bill will significantly increase the transparency of the industry.

The survey of 46 PRCA agency and in-house lobbyists also found that 96 per cent supported the recent amendment to indicate where an organisation abides by a voluntary code of conduct, such as that overseen by the PRCA, APPC or CIPR.

Despite an amendment to include in-house lobbyists on the statutory register proving unsuccessful, 91 per cent of those polled believed that they should be included.

The lobbying bill will get its third reading in the House of Lords tomorrow.
