The Fourth Assembly Standards of Conduct Committee undertook a review, reporting in May 2013, which considered the then lobbying regime in place in the National Assembly for Wales. That Committee recommended that the successor Committee in the Fifth Assembly considers how UK Legislation and Scottish Legislation together with the approach adopted in Northern Ireland in relation to lobbying, are functioning and whether they are achieving the aim of greater transparency.
The Committee undertook an inquiry into lobbying in 2017 and reported in January 2018. The Committee is monitoring the implementation of its recommendations.
