Lobbying Register

The Scottish Parliament has introduced a Lobbying Register for all “regulated lobbying” of MSPs, Scottish Government Ministers and some civil servants.

Communications by, or on behalf of, universities are exempt from the legal requirement to register under the Act, due to universities already being subject to the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
