Pre-appointment hearing: Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists - Political and Constitutional Reform Contents

Conclusions and recommendations

1.  We continue to believe that the Government's policy on lobbying is flawed, but this report is concerned not with the rights and wrongs of the policy, but with the much narrower question of the suitability of the preferred candidate to perform the role of Registrar as it is set out in the Act. (Paragraph 4)

2.  Overall, we are satisfied that Alison White has the professional competence and personal independence required for the post of Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists. We therefore support her appointment and wish her every success in the new role. (Paragraph 18)
