Select committee may be delayed

The Public Administration Select Committee has rearranged its timetable and may not take oral evidence from lobbyists until next year.

As PRWeek went to press, the committee was due to kick off its lobbying inquiry by hearing from three MPs: Labour backbenchers John Grogan and Stephen Pound, and Conservative Peter Luff.

A spokeswoman for the committee said it still planned to hear from ‘some of the big lobbying firms’ but added this might not happen until the New Year.

‘There are no further evidence sessions scheduled before Christmas,’ she said. However, PRWeek understands that the committee has one window on 13 Dec­ember when a session could still take place.
