Opposition Day — Statutory Register of Lobbyists — 25 Jun 2013 at 15:41
The majority of MPs voted against the introduction of a statutory register for all professional lobbyists.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes the absence of a Bill to provide for a statutory register of lobbyists in the Queen’s Speech;
- expresses its concern at the damage which may be inflicted on the reputation of the House in the absence of statutory regulation; and
- calls on the Government to immediately begin cross-party negotiations with a view to introducing a Bill before the summer recess, which would provide for the creation of a register for all professional lobbyists, with a clear code of conduct which is backed by sanctions in the event of egregious breaches of the code
