Tim Farron: We are the only party to consistently call for lobbying reform

Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats

"Ed Miliband's sudden interest in getting to grips with lobbying is mere opportunism, not least as he and his shadow cabinet voted against Liberal Democrat proposals for greater transparency on this very issue when they were in government.

"Liberal Democrats are the only party to have consistently called for reform of the rules around lobbying, that's why there is a commitment to introduce a statutory register of lobbyists in the Coalition Agreement.

"Ed Miliband need not worry. On this issue, like many others, Liberal Democrats will deliver where the last government failed."
