Register your interest - Political lobbying project

Closes 31 Aug 2024

Opened 1 Jun 2023


In April 2023, the Government announced several measures aimed at providing greater transparency around lobbying at Parliament.

The Ministry of Justice is leading two of these measures by:

  • supporting “third-party” lobbyists who lobby on behalf of others to come together to develop a voluntary code of conduct to improve transparency and accountability that will serve as a set of guidelines
  • undertaking a review of the different policy options for regulating lobbying activities.
