Repeal the Gagging Law Campaign

GaggingThis week 38 degrees launched a campaign to repeal the ‘gagging law’, also called the lobbying bill.

 

The campaign by 38 degrees is calling on a commitment from Labour that if they win the election in 2015, they will repeal the gagging law. Glenda has this week written to Ed Miliband to urge him to make a promise that this law will be reversed should Labour come into Government in 2015. When there is a response to Glenda’s letter, we will put an update on the website.

 

The Lobbying Bill (real name - Transparency of Lobbying, Non-party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014) became law when it reached Royal ascent on 30th January 2014 and so will apply to the 2015 election.

 

A summary of the main elements of the bill:

 

  • introduces a statutory register of consultant lobbyists and establishes a Registrar to enforce the registration requirements.

 

  • regulates more closely election campaign spending by those not standing for election or registered as political parties.

 

  • strengthens the legal requirements placed on trade unions in relation to their obligation to keep their list of members up to date.
