To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many lobbying consultancies would need to sign up to the Government's Register of Consultant Lobbyists in order for the Register to be self-funding.
The Transparency Act requires that the regulations are set to recover the costs of the Registrar’s activities from the industry via subscription charges. The Register of Consultant Lobbyists is nearing the end of its set-phase but ongoing running costs would still be different from projections. The total annual charge paid by each registering consultant lobbyist increased from £750 to £1000 on 1 January 2016. The Government will keep the funding arrangements for the Register under review.
