Association of Professional Political Consultants’ second annual

register.



According to the register, which lists any organisation for which the

APPC’s 12 members have worked between June 1995 and end of May 1996, PI

dropped 13 organisations from its client list and added nine new names

including Virgin Atlantic.



IGA stopped working for 15 clients including Prudential, British Steel

Tinplate, the Article Number Association, Boeing and British Alcan

Aluminium. On the plus side, it added ten new clients including Acorn

Computers, Carlton TV and Swiss Life.



Among those gaining were Westminster Communications (net gain 18

clients); GJW (net gain 17 clients); Public Policy Unit (net gain 14

clients) and Westminster Strategy (net gain three clients).



Overall APPC members saw a large turnover of clients. APPC secretary

Charles Miller put this down to a move away from retainers to project

work and a tendency for large clients to use several different firms.



P GPC Market Access is to open an office in Edinburgh in November. GPC

Market Access Scotland will be headed by Jane Saren, currently a

purchasing and commissioning manager with City of Edinburgh Council.
