Early assessment of lobbying law impact

The Commission on Civil Society and Democratic Engagement is inviting all UK based campaigning organisations to submit evidence to its latest consultation, to help the Commission to understand what impact the new lobbying law is having. responses are wanted by 6pm, Friday 5th September. See http://civilsocietycommission.info/monitoring-the-impact-of-the-lobbying-act/.

The Commission was originally set up due to sector concerns around the impact of what is now the Transparency of Lobbying, Non Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act. The ‘non party campaigning’ restrictions come into effect from 19th September. See previous VoluntaryNews coverage for more, such as http://voluntarynews.org.uk/news/2014/06/a-lobbying-act-briefing/.
