Lobbying, a Scottish perspective

In Scotland, the Holyrood parliament is also considering regulating lobbying. An SCVO discussion article ‘Jumping on the lobbying regulation bandwagon would be a mistake for Holyrood’ says that a lobbying register runs counter to the participative principles the Scottish Parliament was founded on, and sector umbrella SCVO sets out its position to the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee Inquiry into Lobbying.

UPDATE: Third Force News has an article which includes some alternative viewpoints.
