PUBLIC SECTOR: National Autistic Society lobbying boost

The National Autistic Society’s (NAS) lobbying activities are set for a boost with the establishment of the first All Party Group on Autism and the selection of NAS parliamentary officer Virginia Harvey to act as secretary to the group. Harvey will act as the key point of contact between the various UK autism groups and MPs, responsible for organising all meetings and speakers. The establishment of the group will provide MPs with a clear channel to access information on autism. Harvey is the only parliamentary officer at the NAS and reports to director of communications Judith Barnard.
