Lobbying Code of Conduct Inquiry

Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-05-16

The Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee has announced an Inquiry into the Lobbying Code of Conduct, (you can get the code here) with submissions due 2008-06-10.  The inquiry is meant to review if…

  • the code is adequate to achieve its aims;
  • the code should apply to members of both Houses of Parliament and their staff;
  • the code should be extended to organisations which lobby on their own behalf; and
  • whether the proposed exemptions are justified.

I’ll probably be looking at this, trying to take the angle of how I’d wriggle through the inevitable escape clauses if I was an evil politician or lobbyist.
