The lobbying world is poised to become a less mysterious place with the
news that the industry’s trade body the Association of Professional
Political Consultants’ annual register of lobbyists will now be
published twice yearly.
The list, which is a client list of each of the member consultancies,
will also now be available by post. It could previously only be accessed
in the association’s office in Rochester Row.
Michael Burrell, one of the association’s founders and managing director
of Westminster Strategy, said: ‘Some members felt that yearly
publication meant the register was too historic.’
