PAC looks closer at lobbyists role

The Public Administration Committee is considering who to call to attend oral evidence sessions this autumn, after receiving a raft of written submissions to its lobbying enquiry.

The deadline for interes­ted parties to submit written evidence was late last month.

DLA Piper’s submission contended that a register of lobbyists maintained by the House of Commons would be the best way to regulate the public affairs profession.

The CIPR maintained that the current system of multiple self-regulation is broadly effective.

However, it added that should Parliament decide to formalise the current system of self-regulation and have one body responsibile then the CIPR is well placed to perform this role.
