Cometh the Autumn, cometh the lobbying blueprint

Newly-elected Labour MP Lisa Nandy has become the first MP this session to chase up Nick Clegg on his plans for a statutory lobbying register.

A written question tabled yesterday by the Wigan MP asked the DPM ‘when he plans to publish details of his plans for a statutory register of lobbyists’.

Alas, the Cleggster himself was not forthcoming on his plans announce future plans, but Cabinet Office minister Nick Harper did show some lobbying leg:

‘The Ministers will meet with representatives of the UK Public Affairs Council shortly to discuss how to create the most effective register, on a statutory footing. We hope to publish detailed plans in the autumn.’
