The Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014 only applies to organisations whose activities “can reasonably be regarded as intended to promote or procure the electoral success of parties or candidates”. It does not apply to local authorities and Directors of Public Health in carrying out their official functions, and therefore the Department has issued no such guidance.
