The Political and Constitutional Reform Committee is to hold a follow-up oral evidence session on the Government’s lobbying Bill.  This follows the Government’s decision to pause consideration of Part 2 of the Bill, on third-party campaigning, while it consults charities and others on the Bill’s provisions.  Consideration of the Bill resumed on 16 December.  The session on 19 December will be looking at what, if anything, has changed during the pause and what more remains to be done. 

The Committee will hear from the following:
